Florida Dems on verge of seating delegates

Just when it seemed over and done, the Florida Democratic Party is near a plan to seat Florida’s delegates. Word is that Michigan is also on the verge of striking a plan, further bolstering Clinton’s decision to stay in the race.

The report on Florida from Breitbart:

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) – Florida Democrats say they’re on the verge of finishing a plan to have the state’s delegates counted toward the party’s presidential nomination.

Thursday’s news comes after Michigan Democrats came up with their own plan. The Democratic National Committee stripped both states of their convention delegates for holding their primaries too early in violation of party rules.

State party spokesman Mark Bubriski told The Associated Press that Florida officials have been talking with campaign representatives of Senators Barack Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton about recognizing all, or part, of Florida’s 211 delegates.

Clinton is trailing Obama in the race for the nomination and is seeking to close the gap with delegates from Florida and Michigan.

The media has pronounce Obama as the nominee, however, Florida and Michigan might change the game a bit in terms of popular vote and the delegate count to some extent.

    I’ve heard several theories and ideas about how the delegates might be awarded – either by percentage or popular vote or what have you. Any inside into what they might be planning on doing?
