Democratic Convention Scramble
(2008-04-23)
(wgvu) - LANSING, Mich. (AP) - A top supporter of Hillary Rodham Clinton
has filed a challenge with the Democratic National Committee to get
Michigan's delegates seated at the national convention.
Michigan and Florida have been stripped of their Democratic
delegates for holding early primaries.
Under DNC member Joel Ferguson's proposal, Michigan would send
28 unpledged superdelegates and 128 pledged delegates to the Denver
convention. Pledged delegates would get half a vote, superdelegates
a full one.
Delegates would be allocated based on the Jan. 15 primary, which
Clinton won.
The campaign of Illinois Sen. Barack Obama said again Wednesday
that the Michigan and Florida delegates should be split evenly
between the two candidates.
The DNC is reviewing the information.
