Florida Democratic Primary Revote is DOA … Michigan Still Hopefull For Do Over


The Florida Democratic primary vote is a colossal nightmare and blunder for Democrats. It appears that any chance for a do over re-vote is dead. One really must wonder how a candidate could ever be chosen by the people without Florida and Michigan being in the mix. How could it have come to this … what a mess.

The Florida Democratic Party has closed the door on a second primary to resolve the delegate issue, a blow to the Clinton campaign’s desire to hold a re-vote and recreate its Florida victory within the rules.

The Florida Democratic Party chair Karen Thurman sent a letter to state Democrats informing them that the party’s proposal for a combination vote-by-mail and in-person voting primary on June 3 is dead.

Florida gives up on re-vote

“This doesn’t mean that Democrats are giving up on Florida voters. It means that a solution will have to come from the DNC Rules & Bylaws Committee, which is scheduled to meet again in April,” Thurman writes.

Florida Dems abandon mail-in vote plan While Michigan May Have Some Hope

While the decision by Florida Democrats left the state’s 210 delegates in limbo, Democrats in Michigan moved closer to holding another contest on June 3. Legislative leaders reviewed a measure Monday that would set up a privately funded, state-administered do-over primary, The Associated Press learned.

      Where is the tired old Democratic outcry of “COUNT EVERY VOTE!” like we heard in 2000???

      I am really enjoying watching the Democrats foul up their own operations in plain view of the public. There’s nothing to lead me to believe that either of the current frontrunning Democratic candidates would do a better job running the country than their own party has done running their primaries.

      For all of McCain’s faults, the lesser of evils is beginning to smell like a rose in my book.

      Doesn’t the whole notion of a ‘re-vote’ illustrate beyond words how corrupt the whole system has become? Every year, the political system sucks up more and more money and resources … and this is the result?

      I would think that some citizens’ groups would be suing the Democratic Party for this mishmash.

      Of course, if it were the Republicans doing it, the media would be all over the story. But it isn’t, and they aren’t.

      Florida, what the hell is going on down there?
      Is it a religious thing, is it a lazy thing, is it a rich thing…..or is it just plain stupidity.
      If I see that _________ with the glasses looking to see if the chad was attached or not, one more time, I’m going to puke. Oh, I guess I won’t see it anymore because there’s not going to be a conflict like that was a few years ago.
