Florida's Delegate Dilemma

State lawmakers are considering a bill to deny a ballot position to any presidential candidate whose part refused to seat Florida’s delegates at its national convention this summer. Questions remain about the ideas constitutionality, but in an effort to force the national Democratic Party to count Florida’s delegates, Governor Charlie Crist says the idea is worth studying.
“Anything’s worth consideration when you’re talking about protecting
your right to vote and the exercise of democracy. I saw that and read it
in some news accounts. Certainly, it's something I would be
willing to look at,” Gov. Crist said.
If such a scenario were to unfold, the task of allotting the state’s 27 electoral votes would likely fall to the state’s GOP controlled legislature.
