An Update From Michigan

Just in: A statement [from] Senator Carl Levin (D-MI); Representative Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick (D-13th District); President Ron Gettelfinger, UAW; and DNC Member Debbie Dingell

We have been working to resolve the question of seating Michigan’s delegates to the Democratic National Convention.

We agree that the Michigan delegation should be seated at the Convention, and without a fight before the Credentials Committee or on the floor of the Convention.

At this time we are focusing on the possibility of a state-run primary in early June, which would not use any state funding. This option would require the passage of legislation by the State Legislature, and we look forward to working with the members of the Legislature in the coming days to see if this option can be made a reality.
