AFT Says Clinton Primary Win In Michigan Will Help Her Get Nomination – 01/16/08
By Doug Cunningham
Far from being meaningless as the corporate mainstream media is saying, Senator Hillary Clinton’s Democratic presidential primary win in Michigan
could clinch the nomination for her when Michigan’s delegates are ultimately seated at the Democratic national convention. Mark Brewer, Chairman of Michigan’s state Democratic Party, says Michigan’s delegates will count despite the national party stripping Michigan of its delegates for violating party rules with an early primary.
[Brewer]: “It’s inconceivable to me that they will start the fall campaign by barring the Michigan delegation from the national convention. It’s politically suicide to do that. So this will be worked out. I’m very confident that our delegation will be seated and will be full participants in the convention next summer.”
