DENVER -- As he sits on a bus heading to the last night of the Democratic national convention, State Rep. Luis Garcia of Miami Beach offered four parting words: "Howard Dean must go."
Garcia, who serves as vice chairman of the Florida Democratic Party, said Dean should be stripped of his post because of the national party's crackdown on Florida and Michigan for holding early primaries. The two battleground states were shut out of the history-making campaign and nearly banned from the convention.
"What he has done to Florida, I won't forgive him for,'' Garcia said. "I take it personally. I've been telling this to everyone who will listen, and I don't think it's falling on deaf ears."
