Two Democratic presidential candidates won't get Oklahoma delegates to national convention
Oklahoma Democratic Party tells Randall Terry and Jim Rogers they didn't comply with party rules for securing delegates based on their performance in March 6 primary.
Won enough of vote
Terry acknowledged Friday that he had not complied with the party's rules for selecting delegates, but he called the decision to deny him delegates “political insider trading.”
“It shows the power and the corruption of the party,” he said.
Terry won 18 percent of the statewide Democratic vote, exceeding the 15 percent threshold for securing an at-large delegate.
Terry also won more than 15 percent of the vote in three of the congressional districts, which might have made him eligible for more delegates.
Terry, who vowed earlier in the week that he would fight a decision to deny him delegates, said Friday that he didn't know whether he would file a legal challenge and was not certain he would attend the Oklahoma Democrats' state convention next week.
Rogers said earlier this week that he didn't file any paperwork with the state party and wasn't aware of the process for securing delegates.
Rogers got more than 15 percent of the vote in three congressional districts.
