DNC Officially Elects Gov. Kaine Chairman

January 21, 2009

(AP) - The Democratic National Committee has elected Tim Kaine as the party's new chairman.

The vote was a formality and the outcome was expected.

President Barack Obama chose the Virginia governor for the post
earlier this month. Kaine is a longtime ally who endorsed Obama for
president in early 2007.

Kaine will serve as chairman on a part-time basis until his
governor's term is up. He was elected to a four-year term in 2005.

The DNC post also is a four-year term.
