WASHINGTON, May 26 (UPI) -- The Democratic National Committee's leadership is looking more diverse now that U.S. Rep. Ed Pastor, D-Ariz., has been named as its latest co-chairman.

Pastor represents Arizona's mostly Hispanic 4th Congressional District and was named to the post Wednesday by the party's probable presidential nominee, Sen. John F. Kerry, D-Mass.

The Kerry campaign said in his new post Pastor, who is Hispanic, will work with DNC Chairman Terry McAuliffe, party co-chair Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., and Rep. Stephanie Tubbs-Jones, a Cleveland Democrat, to amplify the campaign's message in key battleground states.

Pastor, Durbin and Tubbs-Jones, the campaign said, will also act as liaisons between the campaign and their colleagues in Congress.
