Denver! Denver! Denver! Denver! Denver! Denver!


The Rules and Bylaws Committee meeting is getting fairly raucous. When the motion to fully seat Florida’s delegation failed, the crowd started shouting: “Denver! Denver! Denver!” The debate is being constantly interrupted by heckling. But Alice Munro, speaking in the debate over giving the Florida delegates half-votes, called for unity. After having supported the first motion, Munro said: “The world’s not perfect, but it’s good. What this party needs is unity.” Ickes echoed her sentiments.

The motion to give the Florida delegates half votes passed with 27 yes votes.
