John Deeth Blog: Michigan delays district conventions

Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog

Hoping to buy some time to get out of their self-imposed delegate
dilemma, the Michigan Democratic Party has postponed congressional
district conventions scheduled for Saturday. The Detroit News reports
that the conventions have been pushed back to April 19 -- one week
before Iowa's district conventions and three days before the next
major event in the nomination fight, the Pennsylvania primary. The
Michigan conventions will choose 83 national convention delegates, who
as of this writing will be split along the lines of the state's
calendar violating Jan. 15 primary and are not going to be seated.
