Alabama Pre-Cleared By Justice Department

Alabama will be one of the first states to hold a Presidential Primary.

The Justice Department has ok'd a February 5th, 2008 date moved up from June.

The Justice Department pre-cleared the new date Friday along with special voting arrangements for Baldwin and Mobile counties because of the overlap with Mardi Gras.
