BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota Democrats have hired Andrew Zabel as the party's new director.

Democratic Chairman Mark Schneider says Zabel will take the job in early June. He will succeed Joe Aronson, who has taken a job as director of Delaware's state Democratic Party.

Zabel has worked on campaigns in Minnesota, South Dakota and Pennsylvania. He also worked on the presidential campaign of former North Carolina Sen. John Edwards.

The North Dakota Democratic Party's policy committee voted Saturday to hire Zabel. The committee met in Fargo to review candidates for the job. Schneider says 23 people applied.
