INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A national organization of Democrats will meet next summer in Indianapolis.

The Young Democrats of America hasn't gathered in Indiana in more than 25 years. More than 900 people are expected to attend in mid-July 2019.

Indiana has only one Democrat in a statewide office, U.S. Sen. Joe Donnelly, but Indiana Young Democrats says it has 200 members and 24 county organizations.

State Democratic Party chairman John Zody says the party is focused on recruiting the next generation of political activists.

The Young Democrats of America has more than 150,000 members in 48 states and U.S. territories.
