Apparently, the Democrat National Committee feels that they do not need Florida Democrats in order to win the presidency.
The Democratic National Committee sought to seize control of its unraveling nominating process yesterday, rejecting pleas from state party leaders and cracking down on Florida for scheduling a Jan. 29 presidential primary.
The DNC's rules and bylaws committee, which enforces party rules, voted yesterday morning to strip Florida of all its delegates to the 2008 Democratic National Convention in Denver -- the harshest penalty at its disposal.
Now I know that the DNC and Florida Democrats have 30 days to work out this mess, but the damage has been done by the DNC to those loyal to the Democrat party in Florida.
Why would a single Democrat volunteer for a party that is determined to put Florida Democrats at the back of the line?
Florida has the 4th largest amount of electorial college votes. It is a big state. Why would the DNC turn on that many electorial votes?
The DNC just made things a lot easier for Republicans in Florida.
