John Deeth Blog: Who's keeping word on early state pledge?

Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog

The Michigan Pseudo-Primary is now history, and everyone is trying to
have it both ways. As Iowans recall, way back on August 31, when
Michigan and Florida broke the Democratic National Committee's rules
and scheduled their primaries in the middle of the time set aside for
the official early states, the top six candidates all signed a pledge
not to campaign in the rule-breaking "leapfrog" states... For the most
part, the candidates stayed away from Michigan. There were no rallies,
no pre-planned spontaneous stops in diners with the TV scrum in tow,
and thankfully no January field canvassing in the Upper Peninsula.
