TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Former Kansas Congressman and U.S. Agriculture Secretary Dan Glickman plans to speak in Wichita later this month during an annual gathering of the Kansas Democratic Party.

DemoFest is scheduled for Sept. 29. Organizers expect at least several hundred party activists from across the state to attend.

Glickman served as the nation's top agriculture official from March 1995 to January 2001, under Democratic President Bill Clinton.

Before that, Glickman served 18 years in the U.S. House, representing the 4th Congressional District of south-central Kansas. He lost his seat in 1994 to Republican Todd Tiahrt.

After serving as agriculture secretary, Glickman was director of the Institute of Politics at Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government. He was also chairman of the Motion Picture Association of America.
