Please read this article that appeared in the news today. This is what I've been saying all along. The Florida legislature is run by Republicans and the Governor of Florida (formerly the Attorney General under Jeb Bush) is a conservative Republican. They voted to push back the primary to January 29th knowing that the DNC would punish the voters. I am trying to understand why WE lost our voice.
I want to ask a question and hope to get an honest answer. How many people here have been influenced by a "campaign" in their state? Has anyone here ever met a Presidential candidate in person? Have you gone to a rally where a candidate spoke? The voters in FL made their choice already and the Republicans took it away from us. Obama called Florida "a beauty contest" which is an insult to all Floridians who wanted to be heard and went to the polls. That's why there was a record turnout. Now if there are caucuses held in Florida and Michigan, I'm sure he'll be changing his tune. The primary represented the majority of the people, a caucus will not.
Just a side note: Keep in mind that many of the people who voted for Sen Clinton won't be in Florida by the summer. The media keeps saying she attracts the "older voters" and many retirees go up north for a few months after May. In some areas as many as half of the regestered voters live here for 6 months.
