The Democratic National Committee’s Commission on Presidential Nomination Timing and Scheduling, co-chaired by former Secretary of Labor Alexis Herman and former Congressman David Price, held its fourth meeting to develop recommendations for the 2008 presidential nomination process. This portion contains the afternoon session.

Members of the commission agreed to recommendations to: Expand the “pre-window” calendar to include additional states, continue to maintain Iowa and New Hampshire among the states in the pre-window calendar for 2008 specifically by name, decide on the exact number of states to add by the next meeting, and develop incentives such as bonus delegates, to encourage states to hold contests later in the calendar. 

The “pre-window” period is the time before party rules allow states to begin their delegate selection process. "Inside the window" is when the rest of the states hold their contests and where frontloading is a serious concern. close
