A Democratic National Committee spokeswoman brushed off questions today about what to do about Florida and Michigan, states which Hillary Clinton won, but which held contests that weren't fully contested and didn't award any delegates.
Spokeswoman Karen Finney said on MSNBC that the state parties could hold "do-over" votes or submit proposals to the credentials committee for the national convention to get the delegates seated. "Both options are still on the table," she said.
The Florida and Michigan Democratic parties were penalized for holding their primaries before when the DNC allowed. The candidates didn't campaign in the states, and in Michigan, Clinton, but not Barack Obama, was on the ballot.
The Republican parties in Florida and Michigan also lost some of their delegates for holding primaries early. John McCain, however, clinched the nomination Tuesday night, so seating the delegates would be more symbolic.
Clinton has been increasingly lobbying to have her wins rewarded, arguing that Democrats can't afford to disenfranchise two states crucial to the party's hopes in November.
Finney also said that another 10 states are still to vote, suggesting that the nomination could be decided without having to settle the Florida and Michigan question. "We certainly want to let voters have their say," she said.
UPDATE: Republican Governor Charlie Crist of Florida and Democratic Governor Jennifer Granholm of Michigan issued a joint statement this afternoon calling on their respective parties to seat the states' delegates at the national conventions.
"Every vote should count," Crist said at a press conference.
But the governors didn't specify how that should be done. Crist endorsed John McCain just before the Florida primary, giving him a big boost. Granholm is supporting Clinton.
