Fla. House Dems Remain Opposed To Mail-in Ballots

 Florida House Democrats said Thursday that they have read the vote-by-mail proposal from the Florida Democratic Party and remain unconvinced.

Here's the statement they just put out:

"We thank and applaud our State Party Chairwoman Karen Thurman and her staff for their tireless work on this issue. We know that they have only the best of intentions in proposing this plan and appreciate the opportunity to respond to the proposal.

"After reviewing the party's proposal and individually discussing the idea with state and local leaders and elections experts, we do not believe that is this a realistic option at this time and remain opposed to a mail-in ballot election or any new primary election in Florida of any kind.

"We are committed to working with the DNC, the Florida State Democratic Party, our Democratic leaders in Florida, and our two candidates to reach an expedited solution that ensures the seating of our full delegation in August."
