After a month-long wait, Kansas Gov. Mark Parkinson finally named Chris Biggs Secretary of State this morning.

Biggs, a Democrat, had been serving as Kansas Securities Commissioner.

In February, Ron Thornburgh stepped down as Secretary of State and left for the private sector as senior vice president of

sales and marketing of NIC, an Olathe, Kansas-based company that builds and maintains government web sites.

Biggs will fill out Thornburgh's term, which runs out January 10,

2011.

Kansas Democratic Party Chair Larry Gates issued this statement:

"As Geary County Prosecutor and later as Securities Commissioner Chris Biggs earned an exceptional reputation for administrating both offices with the highest regard for fairness and security. These values, combined with Chris's administrative talents, make him an outstanding choice for Secretary of State and equip him to protect the fair, open and secure elections Kansans deserve."
