Possible Florida/Michigan Delegate Split Plan
- Floridaâ€™s existing delegates would be seated at the Denver conventionâ€”but with half a vote each. That would give Clinton a net gain of about 19 elected delegates.
- The two statesâ€™ superdelegates would then be able to vote in Denver, likely netting Clinton a few more delegates.
The betting: Florida and Michigan delegates, the DNC, and the Clinton campaign would all â€” some reluctantlyâ€“ accept this deal.
So it still wouldn’t be enough for her to make up the delegate gap. For that reason alone, I doubt if she’ll accept this.
One thing’s for sure…this sounds INCREDIBLY complicated, and how do you tell the Obama voters that a state that broke the rules is now “sort of” being counted? Doesn’t sound like something the campaign or the voters would stand for.
