The Democratic frontrunner in Florida, Hillary Clinton, has joined a presidential candidate boycott of Florida, which violated Democratic National Committee rules when it moved up its primary to Jan. 29. The boycott was pushed onto the candidates by four smaller states with early primaries.
"We believe Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina play a unique and special role in the nominating process,'' said Clinton campaign manager Patti Sollis Doyle. "And we believe the DNC’s rules and its calendar provide the necessary structure to respect and honor that role. Thus, we will be signing the pledge to adhere to the DNC approved nominating calendar."
