Democrat Hillary Rodham Clinton is planning to visit Florida on Tuesday after the polls close because she says Democrats need to be assured that "their voices are heard."

The move underscores her desire to see the state's delegation seated at the national convention.

Though the Democratic presidential candidates largely have heeded the national party's request that they not campaign publicly in Florida, Clinton says it's time to pay attention to voters there who are showing heavy interest in the primary.

Florida moved its primary up in an attempt to play a bigger role in choosing the presidential nominees. But the Democratic National Committee said it would refuse to seat the state's delegation at the national convention in late August.

It's expected that the eventual nominee will try to reverse that decision because of Florida's crucial role in the general election.
