Thursday buzz

Good morning,

The push to create a solution to the Michigan-Florida delegate mess is picking up momentum this morning.

State officials working on the issue have been joined in their efforts by congressmen in Washington, and while all sides -- the DNC, both governors, legislators from both states and officials from both campaigns -- agree that something should be done to seat the as-now excommunicated delegates, funding remains an issue.

Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, a Republican (who, incidentally, signed the legislation that moved the Sunshine State's primary up, thus triggering the state's penalty from the DNC), has backed away from earlier indications that he would support the state paying for a repeat of the Democratic primary. Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm, a Democrat, has maintained her opposition to a taxpayer-funded do-over from the start.

Check out the FNC story, which I found to be the superior of the two, or this CNN writeup for more.
