Michigan Democrats are close to an agreement with presidential candidates Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama on holding a do-over primary.

According to Democratic sources, party officials and the campaigns negotiated Friday with hopes an agreement can be reached Saturday.

Any plan would require the approval of the two campaigns, the Democratic National Committee, state party leaders and Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm, who is a Clinton supporter.

The contest must be held by June 10 for the results to count under DNC rules.

The national party stripped Michigan and Florida of all their delegates for moving up their primaries before February 5. The two states have been struggling to come up with alternative plans to ensure their delegates are seated at the national convention this summer in Denver.

Florida Democrats are proposing a vote-by-mail presidential primary while acknowledging the plan's chances are slim.
