NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Louisiana won't assign any delegates to a Tennessee lawyer who finished a distant second to President Barack Obama in the state's Democratic primary because he didn't meet the qualifications required.
The state Democratic Party announced Monday that John Wolfe failed to comply with the party's delegate selection plan for the March primary election. He missed deadlines to certify an authorized representative for his campaign in the state and to provide a necessary statement of participation to the state party.
Wolfe got almost 12 percent of the statewide vote. Analysts said he would have earned an estimated three delegates, based on his totals in some congressional districts.
Wolfe didn't return a call placed to his Chattanooga phone number.
