John Deeth blog: Florida Governor Considers Second Primary

Excerpted from this post at John Deeth blog

Charlie Crist, Florida's Republican governor, says he'd support a
second Democratic primary to replace the results of the state's
rule-breaking Jan. 29 vote. The revote would solve one of the
Democrat's two delegate dilemmas. The Democratic National Committee
punished Florida, along with Michigan, for voting before an approved
Feb. 5 date by taking away all its delegates. "I think it's very
important though that those delegates are seated," Crist told CNN
Sunday. "I'm hopeful that the Democratic National Committee comes to
the conclusion it's the right thing to do." The question of seating
the delegates to avoid alienating voters in a large, swing state is
also caught up in nomination politics. Most observers expected that a
triumphant Super Tuesday de facto nominee would restore the delegates.
