The Democratic National Committee Rules and Bylaws Committee considered two separate challenges concerning the seating of delegations from Florida and Michigan at the national convention in Denver.

Formal presentations were heard from the challengers and representatives of the Florida and Michigan state Democratic parties and the presidential campaigns of Senators Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. The committee then broke for an extended lunch, after which they heard motions on the challenges and remedies to provide representation by delegations at the convention. The committee voted to seat the full delegations of both Michigan and Florida with each delegate casting one half vote.

The vote on a remedy for counting votes from the Florida delegation was unanimous in favor of the compromise. The vote on the remedy for Michigan was passed on a vote of 19 to eight, and Mr. Ickes indicated that the Clinton campaign reserved the right to appeal the decision to the credentials committee.

Proceedings of the meeting were interrupted several times by boisterous demonstrations from members of the audience. close
