ATLANTA (AP) - The Democratic Party of Georgia has named a new executive director.

In a statement Tuesday, officials said party Chairman Dubose Porter announced that Rebecca Bukant DeHart has been named as the party's executive director.

Party officials say DeHart has managed political campaigns ranging from local and statewide races to ballot initiatives. Party leaders say DeHart spent years working with the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association, and as the Executive Director of the Georgia Commission on Family Violence.

Porter said in a statement that DeHart ``brings years of local, state and national political experience, a passion for her work and a real commitment to Democratic ideals'' to the position.

DeHart was approved by the party's executive committee on Tuesday and will work with other party leaders to fill additional positions.
