Obama rivial John Wolfe can't win Arkansas delegates

— The Arkansas Democratic Party says a lawyer running against President Barack Obama won’t be awarded any delegates, no matter how he fares in Tuesday’s presidential primary.

Party spokeswoman Candace Martin told The Associated Press on Thursday that John Wolfe hasn’t complied with Arkansas’ delegate selection rules and hasn’t turned in two mandatory documents. Martin said the national party has told the Arkansas Democratic Party that delegates Wolfe might claim won’t be recognized at the national convention.

Wolfe is a lawyer from Chattanooga, Tenn. He says a move to “disenfranchise” voters would reflect poorly on the Democratic Party.

Wolfe could draw a significant amount of the vote in Arkansas, where polls have shown the president is deeply unpopular. Only Wolfe and Obama are on Tuesday’s Democratic presidential primary ballot.

This is absolutely ludricous and I am searcing for Candace's recent statement
where we questioned her about requirements and there was kind of a duh....answer that she probably would not know until after the primary was over. And then at that time she may need to seek legal counsel and talk with the Democratic NATIONAL Party . So this is very, very interesting to us in the humble John Wolfe for America campaign.
