Yes

'Michigan and Florida both decided to violate the rules. They were told, 'If you violate the rules, this will be the penalty.' They violated the rules anyway. And so, now, here we are trying to change the rules after the game,"'he said.

The first course of action is for the state parties to appeal to the Convention Credentials Committee, a group that resolves any issues that pop up."


No

Florida and Michigan knew the rules. They violated the rules. They should pay the consequence. If not, the Democratic Party wouldn't be democratic.
