Mich. Dems to discuss delegate-seating plans Wednesday
(2008-05-07)
(wgvu) - LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Michigan Democratic leaders are getting
ready to decide how they want to appeal to the Democratic National
Committee to seat their national convention delegates.
The state Democratic Party's 80-member executive committee plans
to hold a conference call Wednesday night to discuss the options.
Under one plan, Michigan's pledged delegates would be split
69-59 between Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama.
The other proposal would give 73 pledged delegates to Clinton
and 55 to Obama, based on the Jan. 15 primary results. The state's
28 superdelegates would get a full vote at the convention, but the
pledged delegates would get only half a vote.
The DNC stripped Michigan and Florida of their delegates for
holding primaries before Feb. 5.
