HELENA, Mont. (AP) -- Gov. Phil Bredesen says his proposal for a superdelegate primary received a warm reception from fellow Democratic governors meeting this weekend in Montana.
Bredesen has proposed a two-day superdelegate primary for June, after the last voter primary, in hopes that the party can pick its nominee early and avoid a bitter summer fight between U.S. Sens. Barack Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Bredesen said in an interview that many of his fellow governors feel there's a need to bring the nomination process to a close.
Bredesen said he did not seek commitments from anyone but simply raised his idea in hopes of gathering support for it.
