The election we've all been waiting for

Well not exactly, but Democratic activists will vote this morning for the lucky folks who will represent Florida at the nominating convention.

But, you ask, didn't the Democratic National Committee rule that Florida would be excluded because the state's early presidential primary jumped the gun?

Why yes, but these folks are bound and determined to make their way to Denver in August even if they have to sleep in the lobby of the Motel 6.

Any registered Democrat is eligible to vote. Registration starts at 9 a.m. or 10 a.m., depending on the location. Go to for the location in your congressional district.

This is the chance to support the activist who got you in to see Barack Obama at Miami-Dade County Auditorium last year or to take revenge on the Hillary Clinton supporter who has been wavering in recent weeks.
