The Nebraska Democratic Party will elect new leaders and set the party's platform at its state convention being held in Omaha this weekend.

The biennial convention starts Friday and runs through Sunday. It's being held at the Ramada Plaza Omaha Convention Center.

On Friday, caucus groups and organizations within the party will hold meetings. The general assembly meets Saturday to vote on platform issues, new party leadership and delegates to the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C., in September.

Current state party chairman Vic Covalt is stepping down after two terms, and three people have announced plans to replace him.

Also Saturday, retiring U.S. Sen. Ben Nelson and the Democratic nominee seeking to replace him, Bob Kerrey, will address the convention.
