PRIMARY SCRAMBLE
(2008-04-29)
(wgvu) - LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Top Michigan Democrats working to get
Michigan's delegates seated at the Democratic National Convention
have suggested splitting the delegates 69-59 between Hillary Rodham
Clinton and Barack Obama.
Clinton says she should get 73 delegates based on the results of
the Jan. 15 Democratic primary, 18 more than Obama.
Obama, who took his name off Michigan's ballot, wants the 128
pledged delegates split evenly.
The suggested compromise would be halfway between the two
proposals. Clinton would get four fewer delegates, while Obama
would get four more.
The foursome made its proposal Tuesday in a letter to Michigan
Democratic Chairman Mark Brewer.
The Democratic National Committee stripped Michigan of its
delegates after it moved up its primary.
