No new Democratic primary vote in Michigan

Filed under: Politics — Tags: , , — David Kirkpatrick @ 4:16 pm

Joining the news out of Florida yesterday, it looks like Michigan will not conduct a new vote to try and seat delegates to the Democratic convention.

From the link:

Lansing (WWJ)  — It’s appearing more and more likely there will not be a re-do of the Democratic presidential primary election.  WWJ Lansing Bureau Chief Tim Skubick reports state Senate Democrats came out of a closed door meeting Tuesday morning and said there are not enough votes to approve a re-do.  

Legislative approval is necessary for a re-vote to happen. 

Speaking live on WWJ, Skubick said it would take a “miracle” to have the re-do approved, but he added it’s still possible. 

There has been no comment from the Michigan Democratic Party.  A spokesman said they are waiting to see what the legislature does.
