South Dakota Could Matter In Democratic Contest
February 26, 2008, 7:49 AM
Democrats in states like South Dakota that refused to join the stampede to the front of the presidential nominating calendar might end up with the final say by voting last.
States with springtime primaries and caucuses may play a role in the hard-fought and unusually long-lived race between Democratic hopefuls Barack Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton.
South Dakota will hold its primary on June 3.
Indiana Secretary of State Todd Rokita supports a plan for regional primaries to be held at one-month intervals from March to June, with the regions rotating on the calendar every four years. He says it would be less expensive for candidates and give each region a chance to go first every 16 years.
