DNC Chair Howard Dean was in Tallahassee Tuesday evening for a $100 a plate fundraiser while candidates are holding fast to a DNC ban on visiting the state– unless it is a fundraiser.
Dean met with reporters before his fundraiser and tried to explain himself– while dodging reporter’s questions. Listen to an exchange with The Miami Herald’s Marc Caputo.

Adam Smith, political editor, with the St. Petersburg Times writes this morning about the DNC telling Florida Democrats to drop dead.
Read Smith’s article here, Early primary heat? Bask in it where he writes, “…Stop whining about “disenfranchised voters,” stop threatening bogus lawsuits…”
He also writes, “Florida Republicans, who know a thing or two about winning, are essentially in the same boat. They broke their national party’s rules, too. But you don’t hear them threatening lawsuits and moaning about lost delegates.
“I think it’s silly,” Gov. Charlie Crist said of the Democrats’ dispute. “What matters is people. The people’s vote, the people’s will is what these candidates care about.”

So Dean threw down the hammer and is stripping Florida Democrats of their presidential primary delegates as a punishment for the state moving up the presidential primary to Jan. 29.
Will the RNC do the same?
