Florida and Michigan


Myth: The DNC never intended to disenfranchise Florida and Michigan.

Fact: The intent and spirit of the DNC's rules are clear: states that violated the party's calendar rules would be punished; that punishment entails a dimunution of their ability to influence the party's nominee.

If Michigan and Florida's delegations are seated as is, the party will lose whatever legitimacy it is has to set and enforce rules.
