GREAT FALLS — The state Democratic Party re-elected its top two officers Saturday without controversy, handing two-year terms to Chairman Jim Elliott and Vice Chair Nancy Anderson.

Neither Elliott nor Anderson faced opposition for their slots.

Elliott, a former state senator, is from Trout Creek; Anderson is from Great Falls. Both have served in their posts since 2009.

Party members also chose district chairs for the state.

Saturday’s election was part of the two-day convention’s agenda, which included speeches by numerous Democratic candidates running for statewide office in 2012.

Gov. Brian Schweitzer, who can’t run in 2012 because of term limits, also spoke at the convention luncheon on Saturday and introduced state Attorney General Steve Bullock, who’s running to succeed Schweitzer as governor.

The other Democratic candidate for governor, state Sen. Larry Jent of Bozeman, addressed the convention Saturday morning.
