Delegate Dilemma

March 7th, 2008 by flanews

State lawmakers are considering a bill to deny a ballot position to any presidential candidate whose party refused to seat Florida’s delegates at its national convention this summer. Questions remain about the ideas constitutionality, but in an effort to force the national Democratic Party to count Florida’s delegates, Governor Charlie Crist said the idea is worth studying.

“Anything’s worth consideration when you’re talking about protecting your right to vote and the exercise of democracy. I saw that and read it in some news accounts this morning. Certainly it’s something I would be willing to look at.”

If such a scenario were to unfold, the task of allotting the state’s 27 electoral votes would likely fall to the state’s GOP controlled legislature.
