The Democratic National Committee now has a plan to seat Michigan and Florida’s Democratic Delegates.
This, after both states were stripped of their delegates for moving up their primaries.
But, the DNC rules and bi-laws committee met Saturday, and voted to seat both states’ delegates with every delegate getting half a vote.
Republican Party of Florida Chairman Jim Greer says-- the battle to seat the delegates will hurt Democrats in November.

“At the end of the day, when they get to the convention, I think, there’s going to be a lot of infighting. Senator Obama, I think, is ultimately going to be their nominee. But I think the parties going to be divided,” Greer says.
A record 1.7 million Democrats voted in Florida's January Primary.
Democrats say more voters would have cast ballots if the DNC hadn’t stripped the state of its delegation.
