The Nation : Jackson Hits Party Rules

March 06, 1986

The new rules, which the Democratic National Committee will vote on Saturday, lower from 20% to 15% the threshold of popular votes a presidential candidate needs to be awarded any convention delegates. But Jackson, saying that this is still too high and thus unfair to minority voters, threatened to take his complaint to court.
