Despite hints from her campaign that it might decide to play in Florida, Hillary Clinton said today she has no plans to break the pledge that prohibits the Democrats from campaigning in the Sunshine State.
Barack Obama's campaign has suggested that the Clinton campaign called an Obama national cable ad that airs in Florida a violation of the candidates' pledge because she wants an excuse to come to Florida to boost her campaign. Though Florida's Jan. 29 primary won't involve awarding delegates, winning the biggest state yet to vote could prove a big PR boost.
Clinton called the Obama camp's suggestion that she's looking for an excuse to campaign in Florida "so curious because they're the ones who are running advertisements in Florida. You'll have to ask them what they are doing in Florida.
"I intend to abide by the pledge and follow the pledge,'' she said at a press conference in Washington, DC before jetting off to California. "That's what we are planning to do.''
