BREAKING: CLINTON SUPPORTS SEATING OF FLORIDA AND MICHIGAN DELEGATES AT CONVENTION.

Wow. This just, well, shows a complete disregard for the agreed-upon rules of the primary process. The campaign's statement:

I hear all the time from people in Florida and Michigan that they want their voices heard in selecting the Democratic nominee.

I believe our nominee will need the enthusiastic support of Democrats in these states to win the general election, and so I will ask my Democratic convention delegates to support seating the delegations from Florida and Michigan. I know not all of my delegates will do so and I fully respect that decision. But I hope to be President of all 50 states and U.S. territories, and that we have all 50 states represented and counted at the Democratic convention.

I hope my fellow potential nominees will join me in this.

I will of course be following the no-campaigning pledge that I signed, and expect others will as well.

For context, read Sam Boyd's piece on how the delegate process works.
