The Denver Group in the press - evening August 24, 2008

From CQ Politics:

While the official call for the convention specifies that presidential candidates will be placed in nomination and a roll call taken, it doesn’t specify that the roll consist of the traditional calling out of state’s names from the podium to which state delegations respond by announcing their vote.

That troubles Heidi Li Feldman, a leader of the group who is a law professor at Georgetown University in Washington, “It’s clear they don’t want an on-air roll call. They’re extremely nervous about this,’’ she said.

At the very least, she added, she and her supporters want to ensure “that the tallying of the vote is reliable.’’

She said party officials haven’t responded to her requests for the roll call’s exact rules.
