Florida House Democrats Oppose Primary Revote

The problem in Florida is now becoming a little less cut and dry as the Democratic members of the Florida State House of Representatives are opposing any form of revote be it mail-in or an actual full-blown primary.

Story from The Politico:

Washington, DC – The Members of Florida’s Democratic Delegation in the U.S. House of Representatives issued the following statement regarding the seating of Florida’s delegates at the DNC National Convention this August.

“We are committed to working with the DNC, the Florida State Democratic party, our Democratic leaders in Florida, and our two candidates to reach an expedited solution that ensures our 210 delegates are seated.

“Our House delegation is opposed to a mail-in campaign or any redo of any kind.”

It just seems like there is difficulty in getting everyone on the same page with this issue. It’s convoluted to the point where all parties are concerned about getting their interests to count.

Either way, it’s not going to be possible to please everyone in this process. There seems to be a large contingency, as evidenced by our site poll, that believe “rules are rules” and they all knew them going in. Therefore, any bending of the rules in the form of a new primary or seating the existing delegates is going to create some major disagreement within the Democratic Party.

    Rules are rules and they knew what the rules were and decided to break them.

    Perhaps some sort of re-vote but with only half of the original delages at stake would be a fair compromise.
