Wooing Presidential Primaries For 2000

NPR's Howard Berkes reports from Salt Lake City on the efforts of western states to attract attention to their presidential primaries in the 2000 election. Law makers from eight western states met in Salt Lake City earlier this week to discuss plans for holding a one-day western state primary on the Saturday after the first Tuesday in March. The state officials at the meeting all agreed to hold their primary on this day, but the plan must be approved by the legislatures of each state represented at the meeting before the primary date will be changed.
