CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming Democratic Party has hired a new executive director.

Robin Van Ausdall comes from Colorado. She is a veteran of Democratic political campaigns in Colorado and was the Democratic National Committee field officer for northeast Colorado from 2005 through 2008.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/rw7XK6) state Democratic officials haven't decided yet when Van Ausdall will begin her new job.

She replaces Bill Luckett, who resigned in October and moved to Oregon.
