Bottom line, she’d get 10 more delegates than him. My guess is that he’ll probably accept this and she won’t.

A separate plan submitted to the rules committee by Democratic National Committee members Joel Ferguson of Michigan and Jon Ausman of Florida, both superdelegates, apparently will be withdrawn now that the Michigan executive committee has settled on the 69-59 plan. Under their proposal, delegates would have been allocated based on the primary election results, but have had only half a vote each. The superdelegates would have had full voting rights.
A message seeking comment was left on Ferguson’s cell phone Wednesday evening.
The DNC stripped Michigan and Florida of their convention delegates â€” 366 in all, including pledged delegates and superdelegates â€” for holding their primaries too early in the nominating process, which violated party rules.
