Primary Scramble
(2008-03-13)
(wgvu) - TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - The chairwoman of Florida's Democratic
Party has said the proposed presidential primary do-over is
unlikely to go forward because of concerns about the combined
mail-in/in-person election.
Still, Karen Thurman said Thursday she is asking Democratic
leaders, the national party and Senators Barack Obama and Hillary
Rodham Clinton to consider the option as the best way to resolve a
delegate dispute. The disagreement was created when the state
violated party rules by holding an early primary.
Thurman will review comments from Democratic leaders and make a
decision by Monday on whether to proceed with the do-over. But she
says based on what she's already heard, it's unlikely to happen.
