JUST IN: Registered Democrats Sue to Kick Commie Bernie Sanders Off Ballot in Florida | David Harris Jr
Two voters in Florida are suing to keep Bernie Sanders from receiving any votes in Florida. Florida conducts a closed primary, meaning you can only vote for a candidate who is running for the nomination if you are registered to that party. Since Bernie is an Independent, they argue only independents can vote for him.
However, primaries are run by the individual states, and they have great leeway on who can run and who can’t. In Florida, the representatives voted unanimously to allow Bernie Sanders on the ballot; therefore, I see this lawsuit going nowhere. Representatives in other states with closed primaries might be able to make the case for knocking him off the ballot. They are not bound by what happens in the Florida case.
