Oklahoma Democrats pin their new 24-year-old leader

Oklahoma Democrats pin their new 24-year-old leader
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Oklahoma Republicans like to boast that their state is the reddest of the red, with their party holding every statewide elected office and congressional seat.
Democrats hoping to chip away at the Republican stranglehold have pinned their hopes on Anna Langthorn, a 24-year-old woman who has logged more than five years in the political trenches.
While acknowledging her age may raise eyebrows, the newly elected chairwoman of the Oklahoma Democratic Party hopes it will also help her to fan a growing enthusiasm in the state, especially among other young people.
Oklahoma went hard for Republican Donald Trump in November, but Langthorn said she’s seen a dramatic increase in the number of young people showing up to local and state Democratic Party organizational meetings since Trump took office.
