You probably already know this, but there will be no revote in Michigan and the Governor ain’t happy.
Honestly, I had hoped they wouldn’t revote, given how clear the DNC’s punishment was, but I was willing to see them just do it to get it over with. Glad to see the Michigan legislature basically uphold the original ruling with their inaction instead of allowing the Hillary camp to change the rules midstream.
“I believe Senator Levin, Congresswoman Kilpatrick, National Committeewoman Debbie Dingell, and UAW President Ron Gettelfinger identified the fairest way for Michigan voters to have a voice in seating a delegation in Denver. They recommended to the Democratic National Committee (DNC) that Michigan hold a state-run, privately funded primary. I supported their recommendation, as did the DNC, and I am deeply disappointed that it is no longer a possibility.
Now that the Legislature has decided not to act, we will turn our attention to other options. There is no road to the White House that does not go through Michigan, so it is essential that Michigan voters have a voice in who will be our partyâ€™s nominee and, ultimately, the next president of the United States.”
I understand why Granholm is upset, but she should have thought about that last year.
Lingering question: what will the “other options” be? Most likely they’ll try to do some weird delegate split, but ultimately end up just going half and half for Hill and Obama. There’s little else they can do at this point.
