The Kentucky Democratic Party is the first in the nation to offer supporters an iPhone application. Officials billed the launch as making it “easier than ever to receive news and stay in contact with elected officials, party leaders and fellow Democrats.”
The app will include news releases, upcoming state events that can be downloaded directly to the iPhone calendar and a GPS “to determine a user’s Senate or House district and Senator or Representative and add their information to an iPhone’s contacts.”
