WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Anti-abortion activist Randall Terry says he'll go to court to try to get his name on the ballot in the Kansas Democratic presidential caucus.

The Kansas Democratic Party determined this week that Terry is not a bona fide Democrat and won't be awarded any delegates from the party's April 14 Kansas caucuses.

The Wichita Eagle reported Friday (http://bit.ly/GI5pBY ) that Terry said keeping him off the ballot is a violation of the Constitution.

Democratic Party attorney Joe Sandler said Terry also failed to meet two mandatory deadlines, one for naming his state representative and another for filing a plan to encourage participation in the caucus by potential delegates.

Terry said the deadlines he missed were not meaningful because he was planning to act as his own representative in Kansas.
