DNC's Dean Urges Do-Over Contests In Florida, Michigan

Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean wants Florida and Michigan party officials to come up with plans -- and the money -- to repeat their presidential nominating contests.

Dean said Thursday during a round of interviews on network and cable TV news programs that state parties would have to pay for new contests because the national party needs money "to win the presidential race."

Michigan's governor, top officials in Hillary Rodham Clinton's campaign, and Florida's state party chair all are now saying they would consider holding a sort of do-over contest by June.

That's a change from the previous insistence from officials in both states that the primaries they held in January should determine how their delegates are allocated.
