Florida Democrats reacted to weeks of political wrangling today by ditching plans for a mail-in revote, the Miami Herald reports. "Thousands of people responded," Florida Democratic Party chair Karen Thurman wrote. "The consensus is clear: Florida doesn’t want to vote again. So we won’t." But she said the Sunshine State still isn't calling it quits.
"It means that a solution will have to come from the DNC Rules & Bylaws Committee" next month, she explained. Hillary Clinton's camp said it was disappointed by the move, but Barack Obama had shown concern over the security of a hasty mail-in vote. Meanwhile Michigan Democrats mulled a measure today for a privately funded re-vote on June 3, the AP reports.
