Published 5/25/2004 12:08:33 AM Democratic Party leader Terry McAuliffe was caught off guard last week when word leaked that the campaign of presumptive presidential nominee Sen. John Kerry was considering a plan to continue unlimited fundraising and spending via a delay in accepting the party's presidential nomination.
"Conventions are considered news events and special events that do not require the same kind of equal time considerations that other political events require," says a DNC source.
After Kerry's speech, the delegates would vote for a recess of the convention, with a motion to reconvene the state delegations on or about September 1 for a national nomination vote. /dsp_article.asp?art_id=6606   (780 words)
