FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - The Kentucky Democratic Party has hired a new communications director as it prepares to support Jack Conway’s campaign for governor in November.

David Bergstein started his new job on Thursday. He had similar duties for the Florida Democratic Party during the 2012 presidential election cycle. He is a former regional press secretary for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and has experience working on campaigns in California and nearby Indiana.

Kentucky Democratic Party Chairman Patrick Hughes said Bergstein is a valuable addition to the party as it prepares to wage an aggressive campaign for governor. Conway, the current attorney general, faces little-known candidate Geoff Young in the May 19 Democratic primary.

Four people are seeking the Republican nomination: Matt Bevin, James Comer, Hal Heiner and Will T. Scott.
