Clinton campaign opposes giving Obama more Mich. delegates
(2008-05-08)
(wgvu) - LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Hillary Rodham Clinton's campaign opposes
Michigan's plan to give fewer delegates to her and more to rival
Barack Obama.
The Democratic National Committee stripped Michigan and Florida
of their convention delegates for holding their primaries before
Feb. 5. Both are looking for compromises that would get their
delegates seated.
Michigan Democrats now back a plan that would give Clinton four
delegates less than the 73 she gained by winning the state's Jan.
15 primary. Obama would get 59 pledged delegates even though he
took his name off the ballot, forcing his supporters to vote for
Uncommitted.
A Clinton campaign spokesman said Thursday that the campaign
won't support any proposal that gives Clinton less that the
delegates she earned winning the primary.
