Democrat Blues

September 13th, 2007 by Mike Vasilinda

The State Democratic Party is telling Florida Democrats their vote will count on January 29th, even if the party is forced to select a slate of delegates some other way. The national party is refusing to seat delegates from the January 29th Primary vote because the early date violates party rules. Instead, the State Party Chairman Karen Thurman is considering a caucus, a mail in vote, or even a web based caucus to select delegates. The important thing, she says, is that the rest of the nation will notice what happens on January 29th in Florida.

I cant imagine anybody thinking if they took their time to go to the polls, to do the homework that they needed to do, to choose the candidate that they want as president. That sends a message, not just across Florida but across the nation. This is a large important state. says Thurman.

The party expects to announce how it will select delegates to the national convention within a week.
