BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) _ North Dakota's Democratic Party has hired Bismarck native Chad Oban as its new executive director. And the state's Republican Party is looking for a new executive director to replace Anthony Reedy, who has taken a job as director of Virginia's state Republican Party.
Oban succeeded Andrew Zabel, who left the post late last year.
Oban was the Democratic Party's state treasurer from 2009-11 and managed two campaigns for former North Dakota Agriculture Commissioner Roger Johnson.
The state Republican Party says it is accepting resumes to replace Reedy, who is resigning Jan. 15 to return to his native Virginia.
