“It's a very exciting time for Democrats because we're getting a new Congressional District.  After discussions with Chair Randy Kelley, we want to ensure that our delegate selection abides by DNC rules and regulations.  Delegates are apportioned by congressional districts; therefore, we decided to hold off on opening our delegate selection until we have a firm idea of what this new and competitive seat is to look like,” said Tom Miro, Executive Director of the Alabama Democratic Party.
