Michigan Democrats plan 'endorsement convention'
Michigan Democrats plan to endorse their candidates for the state Supreme Court and statewide education boards on March 10.
The Michigan Democratic Party announced the move Thursday. It will allow Democrats to get a head start on campaigning in those races for the November 2012 election.
The endorsements will come several months before Democrats can officially nominate candidates to run for those offices. Nominating conventions typically are scheduled for August or later.
Democrats also used an endorsement convention to get a head start on campaigning for some races in 2010.
