Florida Sen. Bill Nelson (D). “Florida Deserves a Revote”. March 10, 2008 – “it’s imperative that the Democratic Party at both the national and state levels participate in finding a solution. Otherwise the Democratic Party unfortunately appears headed for a political train wreck that could involve a floor fight at the convention over recognizing Florida’s delegates. That risks alienating a key battleground state in the run-up to the November elections.
With so much at stake, and the race so close, it’s apparent to me that a new election in Florida is a fair way to provide both candidates with another chance to win needed delegates in a state that is certain to be pivotal in November.”
