No Re-do Of Primary Election In Florida
With any luck at all, the federal 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta will come riding to the rescue of 1.7 million Florida Democrats who thought they already voted for their choice in the presidential primary.
True, one federal lawsuit contesting the Democratic National Committee's decision to deny seats to Florida's delegates at its upcoming national convention already has been dismissed. But an awful lot has happened since then.
There has been talk of a "re-do" primary election in both states. Michigan continues to move ahead. However, Florida threw in the towel Monday afternoon. NO NEW ELECTION IN FLORIDA. "A party-run primary or caucus has been ruled out, and it's simply not possible for the state to hold another election, even if the party were to pay for it," said Karen Thurman, Florida Democratic chairwoman.
