President Barack Obama got 57 percent of the vote statewide and won a majority or plurality in all of the congressional districts. The president would qualify for the vast majority of the delegates.
Terry said he could qualify for as many as six delegates in Oklahoma; Rogers said he didn't know how many he might qualify for under party rules.
Terry, who has been airing commercials that show what he calls “images of babies murdered by abortion,” is aiming to prevent Obama from getting the Democratic presidential nomination unanimously. He will also be on the general election ballot in Florida and four other swing states and said he could deny Obama a second term if he gets enough of the vote.
In a letter written in January, when Terry was seeking to buy air time for his ads during the Super Bowl, a Democratic National Committee official wrote a letter saying Terry was not a bona fide Democratic candidate and could not satisfy the requirements for getting national delegates.
“Mr. Terry's claims to be a Democratic candidate for president are false,” Patrick Gaspard, executive director of the DNC, said in the letter. “Accordingly, he should not be accorded the benefits of someone conducting a legitimate campaign for public office.”
