Encouraged by wins last night in Texas and Ohio, Hillary Rodham Clinton is again calling for Florida and Michigan to be counted in the nomination race.
Both states were penalized by the Democratic Party for moving up their primaries ahead of a schedule set by the Democratic National Committee. None of the Democratic candidates campaigned in either state, but Clinton won the popular vote in both state primaries.
Clinton today said it would be a "mistake for the Democratic Party to punish these two states."
Based on the current delegate count, those delegates would be important as neither Clinton nor Barack Obama can win enough delegates in the remaining primaries and caucuses to secure the nomination without the help of superdelegates.
