Campaign to Retain a Fair Nomination Process 

Senator Clinton's campaign has chosen to push to change the rules while the Democratic nominating process is already underway. 

Her campaign is advocating for the seating of Michigan and Florida delegates after the Democratic National Committee stripped both states of their delegates in response to each state's decision to move up their primary date.

As Josh Marshall noted, it is inappropriate to "change the rules in midstream to favor one candidate or another."  As Joe Gandelman points out, Hillary Clinton made that very argument months ago.

This campaign is concerned that Senator Clintons' attempt to seat delegates from states in which she and her opponents explicitly pledged to not campaign will have disastrous implications for the Democratic Party and the Democratic nomination process.  As Ezra Klein warns, "This is the sort of decision that has the potential to tear the party apart."

As a result, we strongly urge Senator Clinton, in the interest of the Democratic Party and the millions of Americans who have a strong interest in avoiding a fractious, divisive Democratic National Convention, to abide by the rules set down months ago and explicitly agreed to by her campaign and abandon her push to have the Michigan and Florida delegates seated in the upcoming Democratic National Convention.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
