Obama offers Clinton 19 Florida delegates

Representing the Barack Obama campaign, U.S. Rep. Robert Wexler urged the Democratic National Committee to seat half of the Florida delegates at the convention, yielding Hillary Clinton 19 delegates.

In the past, the Obama campaign has argued that the Florida primary was not a fair fight because the candidates did not campaign in the state. But now, on the threshold of the nomination, Obama is willing to accept her earning some delegates out of her victory on Jan. 29.

"Sen. Obama offers this concession to promote reconciliation with Florida voters,'' Wexler said.
