Florida women rally in Washington

From our McClatchy bureau's Steve Thomma:

Hundreds of people - most of them women and virtually all of them Hillary supporters - are protesting outside the hotel where the Democratic Party's Rules and Bylaws Committee will meet to decide the fate of convention delegates from Florida and Michigan.

"We voted. We want our votes counted," said Janet W. Larson, a Democrat from Jacksonville.

She was one of more than 100 Democrats from the Jacksonville area who rode two buses to Washington, arriving about 1 am after a 12-hour ride. They're waving signs proclaiming,  "We spoke loud and clear. Our voices must be heard."

She said she knew that Florida's primary violated party rules because it was too early. But she said Florida voters shouldn't be penalized.

"It's the politicians who did this," she said. "Not the voters."
