The Obama and Clinton campaigns rejected a compromise plan for seating Florida’s delegates—half according to its illicit January primary and the other half based on national vote totals or delegate counts. Sunshine State lawmakers are demanding their state get some sort of say in the tight Dem race; one suggested the candidates “get in a room together and work this thing out.”
The proposal would have netted Clinton 63 delegates and Obama 42, the Tallahassee Democrat reports. Both candidates say they’d love to find a fair solution, the Miami Herald adds, but the architect of the failed compromise painted a stark situation. With the DNC refusing to act, and “not much more that Florida can do,” the ball is now in the candidates' court.
