Legislators and others want Arkansas to have more of a say in the front-loaded presidential primaries. They will decide next year whether to require state political parties to pick their national convention delegates earlier. State Representative Jeremy Hutchinson of Little Rock filed the bill yesterday and hopes it will be taken up during the coming legislative session. He said states that choose their delegates earlier get to have earlier primaries and establish their front-runners for statewide and national office. The heads of both major parties in Arkansas like the idea. Incoming Republican state director Clint Reed said it would help and Democratic Party chairman Ron Oliver said he`s been wanting the change for awhile. Presidential primaries are now loaded at the beginning, in February and March. Oliver said it hurt retired General Wesley Clark of Little Rock that his home state didn`t hold its primary until May, and he was forced to drop out of the Democratic presidential race in February.
