Even thought the Democratic nomination for President was settled peacefully, a Wisconsin Congressman is continuing his call for reforms in the process.
Congressman Ron Kind (D-WI) says the heated primary battle between Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton exposed major flaws with the selection process, primarily in the use of super delegates. Those are at large delegate slots in each state that are not bound to any candidate. Kind says their continued use is anti-Democratic because it denies some voters a voice regarding who will be the Party's nominee.
Kind also has concerns about the wide-variety of ways delegates are selected, such as caucuses. He says the party should consider an open primary process, similar to Wisconsin's which allows everyone to participate, not just the Party faithful.
The Democratic Party has formed a rules committee to examine possible changes. However, Kind doesn't expect the issues to be resolved right away with the National Convention still underway. However, he will continue pushing for change before the next presidential election rolls around.
