JEFFERSON CITY — Missouri Auditor Susan Montee says there need to be some changes within the state Democratic Party.

Montee lost a re-election bid this November to Republican Tom Schweich.

She says Democrats did a poor job of getting their message out during the past election and a poor job of getting Democratic-inclined voters in rural areas to the polls. But she says there's little that an auditor's candidate could have done to drive up voter turnout.

Montee has served in various Democratic Party roles over the years. She declined to say whether she was interested in a Democratic leadership position after her auditor's term ends in January.
