Florida Democrats Consolidate County Caucuses on May 5

In a revised delegate selection plan -- dated October 25, 2011 -- the Florida Democratic Party has opted to hold all county caucuses on May 5. The earlier version of the plan that was open to public comment put forth a conditional plan whereby the county caucuses scheduled for the period of April 15-May 5 would serve as the first determining step in the Florida Democratic Party delegate selection. In the time since, the date of the county caucuses has changed in addition to some other details that the DNC Rules and Bylaws Committee required for approval of the plan.

With one consolidated county caucus date in May, the Florida delegation to the Democratic convention will increase because of a 15% bonus for holding a later contest.
