Georgia Democrats have formally proposed Barack Obama to be their candidate on the state's March 6 presidential preference primary ballot.

Secretary of State Brian Kemp issued a notice to the chairman of each political party asking for a list of candidates' names. The deadline to submit names is Nov. 15.

The Republican field is expected to be far more crowded.

Georgia election law requires the secretary of state's office to publish the lists of each party's candidates on its website during the fourth week immediately preceding the date on which the presidential preference primary is to be held.
