Democrats Look to Shake Up Primary Format

Via Political Wire:

"Democrats trying to change their presidential primaries for 2008 agreed to recommend that at least two other states join Iowa and New Hampshire in voting during the opening days of the nominating campaign," the AP reports.

That expansion "is intended to provide more racial and geographic diversity to an opening process now dominated by Iowa and New Hampshire. Those states, representing about 1.5 percent of the country's population, have residents who are mostly white. The additional states, expected to be named later, were likely to include a smaller state from the South and a smaller state from the Southwest or West."

We'll have more on this later.
