John Deeth Blog: Florida U.S. Reps: No Do-Overs
Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog
Florida's U.S. House delegation threw another monkey wrench into the state's delegate dilemma Tuesday night. "Our House delegation is opposed to a mail-in campaign or any redo of any kind," the House members said in a joint release. Their preference is to seat the delegates chosen in the rule-breaking Jan. 29 primary, a move that would give Hillary Clinton an advantage. Momentum had been rapidly moving toward a do-over primary on mail in ballots, a plan pushed by Sen. Bill Nelson, a Clinton supporter. The state Democratic Party has been preparing a new delegate selection plan and was expected to send it to the Democratic National Committee as soon as Thursday. Florida chair Karen Thurman wants to get ballots sent to overseas and military voters as soon as possible.
