The party announced in an email Thursday morning that 35-year-old Ethan Corson will soon take over as executive director.

The statement sent by the Democratic party said Corson lives in Prairie Village and will begin work August 1. Before going to work in the administration, he was an attorney in private practice and did pro bono work in voting rights cases. Kobach also is running for the GOP nomination for Kansas governor.

Corson served as chief of staff of the International Trade Administration, part of the Commerce Department, and as a senior adviser to Commerce Secretary Penny Pritzker, who was appointed by President Obama.

Corson said in the release that he was honored to lead the party. He and his fiancee, Jenna Brofsky, moved to Prairie Village recently, according to the release.

Party Chairman John Gibson says Corson's previous work is especially important at a time when Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach is working to tighten the state's and the country's voting laws.
