ODP Central Committee Approves Delegate Plan for National Convention

As news nationwide focuses on states jockeying for position in the presidential primary elections, a defacto National Primary Day - February 5, 2008, the Oklahoma Democratic Party's Central Committee on Saturday approved its plan for selecting delegates and alternates to the August 2008 Democratic National Convention in Denver.

The plan involves delegate selection and a timeline for the delegate selection process. The plan will be submitted to the Democratic National Committee's (DNC) Rules and Bylaws Committee following a 30-day comment period that begins today.

Oklahoma Democratic Party Chair Lisa Pryor said the plan is available for review at the ODP headquarters located at 4100 N. Lincoln Blvd. in Oklahoma City and online at www.okdemocrats.org. Comments regarding the plan must be submitted in writing to the Party via mail, email or fax no later than April 27. All comments will be included in the plan submitted to the DNC.

"I'm excited to submit the Oklahoma plan to the DNC and lay the groundwork for Oklahoma delegates to go to Denver in 2008 to officially nominate the next president of the United States," Pryor said.
