Solution sought in Florida Michigan primary issue

With the race for the Democratic nomination in a dead heat, some are seeking a solution that would allow Florida and Michigan, whose delegates were barred from the convention, to count in the primary, reports CNN.

Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean, has said that one possibility is to have mail in ballots.

One of the largest factors facing the "do-overs" is the financial aspects. Neither states nor the DNC is willing to shell out the cash for a second election, which has brought the concept to a stand still.

The two states were barred from the convention when they held their primary elections too early in the season.
