Republican-Run States Cancel Presidential Primaries
Some Democrats Push Against Primaries

POSTED: 7:23 a.m. EST November 10, 2003

There's new fuel for the argument that the country's primary election system is in dire need of repair.

Kansas, Colorado and Utah have canceled their state-run presidential primaries next year. All three have Republican-controlled legislatures.

Some Democrats complain that cutting primaries hurts them especially, with their crowded field of candidates. President George W. Bush has no challenger.

But other Democrats are pushing to get rid of primaries. Maine dropped its presidential primary for next year, and New Mexico effectively did -- passing a law allowing parties to hold caucuses.

In most states forgoing a primary, the party-run caucuses will be used to choose delegates to the national conventions.

Some state officials say they can't afford the millions of dollars it takes to put on a primary. But critics of the trend say it freezes out average voters.
Not sure how to feel about this.
