Hillary Clinton did more than just imply today, she flat out stated that she’s willing to take the fight for Michigan and Florida delegates all the way to the Democratic convention.
The news from Political Punch:
In Boca Raton, Florida, today, Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-NY, told the AP that she’s willing to take her fight to seat Florida’s and Michigan’s delegates (also known as her fight to be the Democratic nominee) to the Democratic National Convention in Denver, Colo., this August if Democratic leaders in the two states want her to.
“Yes I will,” she told the AP. “I will, because I feel very strongly about this.”
It seems crazy to me that she’s willing to let this campaign drag out for several more months but it appears that might happen. I say might because I still am betting she drops in June once the primaries are over. Then factor in the problem with the Florida and Michigan delegates which, even if they are seated, will not give her any kind of delegate lead.
Video of Clinton speaking in Florida from the Associated Press:
I can’t possibly see this dragging to the convention, Democratic Party leaders will never allow that to happen. It will be ended sometime in June when the Clinton and Obama campaigns come to an understanding. I’m suspecting it will have something to do with paying off Clinton’s millions in campaign debt.
