Dem Party Denies Terry Delegates (Mar 16, 2012)

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma's Democratic Party says it won't award delegates to an anti-abortion activist who earned 18 percent of the vote in this month's presidential primary because the candidate didn't follow party rules.

Operation Rescue founder Randall Terry claims he is entitled to six delegates and on Friday called the decision "political insider trading."

Party rules say any candidate who wins more than 15 percent of the vote may claim delegates to the national convention. Wallace Collins, the chairman of the Oklahoma Democrats, told Terry in a letter he didn't follow procedures "in spirit" or "in execution" and didn't demonstrate that he was a true member of the political party.

Until Oklahoma balloting March 6, President Barack Obama had won all Democratic delegates awarded this year.

The president visits Oklahoma next week.
