WMNF Drive-Time News Thursday | Listen to this entire show:
One possibility for getting around the fact that a new primary in Florida could cost as much as $25-million is to hold a vote-by-mail primary.
The Florida Democratic Party has said it has a "very detailed proposal" on how to do that, although when asked today party spokesman Alejandro Miyar admitted he wasn’t that familiar with the details.
Meanwhile, the Miami Herald reported today that if Florida were to hold another vote between May 1 and June 10, national party rules award 30 percent extra delegates to states that hold out to the end of the primary season.
