LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - The Arkansas Democratic Party is choosing delegates for the party's national convention in Charlotte, N.C., in September.
About 160 party members met Saturday in downtown Little Rock to elect 55 delegates and three alternates. The party is to provide a list of the delegates later Saturday.
Absent from the proceedings were supporters of John Wolfe, who got 42 percent of the vote in the state's Democratic presidential primary. The party says Wolfe isn't entitled to any delegates because he didn't follow proper procedures.
Wolfe has filed a federal lawsuit to challenge that decision. Wolfe said in a phone interview Saturday that he's relying on the courts to award the 19 delegates to which he says he's entitled. Wolfe says the national party is trying to stifle dissent.
