BISMARCK - North Dakota Democrats are hoping to snag presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama as their state convention's keynote speaker, a party official confirmed Monday.

"Efforts have been made to get him to be our keynote speaker," said party communications director Rick Gion, but there's no answer yet.

Party Executive Director Jamie Selzler said the party has also asked Sen. Hillary Clinton to consider speaking at the convention.

He said the party should know early next week if one might be their speaker.

The Democratic-NPL state convention is April 4-6 at the Alerus Center in Grand Forks.
