Democratic convention delegates chosen

Posted By on Sun, Jun 17, 2012 at 7:11 AM

Following is the slate of Democratic National Convention delegates chosen from Arkansas yesterday. The Obama primary protest vote scored page one in the daily newspaper again today, helped by the Democratic Party's poor PR decision to close part of the delegate selection process to the public. They apparently needn't have bothered. Only two people had expressed interest in being delegates for the protest candidate John Wolfe in the first place and they were sufficiently discouraged from attending by the party's earlier ruling that the protest candidate hadn't met party rules to qualify for delegates. The John Wolfe saga will continue in court.


At the Democratic Party of Arkansas Special State Convention today, the delegation to represent Arkansas at the 2012 Democratic National Convention was selected. The following people will serve as delegates to the 2012 Democratic National Convention to nominate President Barack Obama as our Democratic nominee for president.
