WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at http://www.DemocraticConventionWatch.com
Today it was reported that Swisher, a former Edwards supporter, has endorsed Senator Clinton. (We'll get her added to the lists shortly).
Sarah Swisher, first vice chair of the Iowa Democratic Party, serves on the Democratic National Committee's rules committee. That committee punished Florida for scheduling its primary today, a week before an approved window. Friday, Clinton said she will ask her delegates to seat delegates from Florida and Michigan.
"It's not helpful when you have candidates express themselves in direct conflict to rulings by the DNC," said Swisher. "It's helpful for those participating in the nomination process to adhere to the rules of the party. We didn't see any letters of support for Florida months ago," said Swisher.
"State parties were very well informed about the repercussions of violating the DNC rules," said Swisher. "Michigan and Florida chose to do so at their own peril and with full warning."
I'd like to hear Swisher's thoughts now on the Florida situation.
