MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Alabama's State Democratic Executive Committee has voted 80 to 73 to adopt new bylaws supported by the party chairwoman at a contentious meeting in Montgomery.

But the Montgomery Advertiser reports that the bylaws approved Saturday have not been adopted by the Democratic National Committee.

Opponents of chairwoman Nancy Worley said the adoption of the latest bylaws comes well after a key deadline.

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — The Alabama Democratic Party's governing board has called a Saturday meeting to vote on new party bylaws.

U.S. Sen. Doug Jones' campaign confirmed Tuesday that a majority of members of the State Democratic Executive Committee called for the meeting.

The Jones campaign says the show of support from SDEC members across the state "is the first step in creating a more transparent, diverse and inclusive Alabama Democratic Party and complying with the DNC guidelines."

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Alabama Democratic party leaders could lose their seats on the Democratic National Committee after the state party twice missed deadlines for new leadership elections.

The DNC's credentials committee on Thursday recommended revoking the credentials of Alabama Chairwoman Nancy Worley and Vice-Chair Randy Kelley. The action came after the state party missed two deadlines for new elections and party bylaws.

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Two former candidates are challenging Nancy Worley to lead the Alabama Democratic Party.

Former congressional challenger Tabitha Isner announced Wednesday that she is running for party chairwoman.

Isner waged an aggressive but unsuccessful challenge last year against Republican Rep. Martha Roby. Will Boyd, who ran for lieutenant governor last year, is also challenging Worley.

Isner in a statement said Democrats need a committed party leader to support candidates and help get their message to voters.
