UPDATED: Democratic donations may pay for new MI primary

UPDATE: Party leaders are working on an agreement with the party's two presidential candidates, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama to hold the party-funded voting.

The vote has to be held before June 10 for the results to count in the democratic convention.

Yet another option to seat Michigan democratic delegates.

Party leaders are proposing a state-run democratic primary that would be held in May or June that would be paid for by democratic donors.

Barack Obama's campaign opposes a mail-in election proposed recently.

Hillary Clinton's campaign is against a plan to split the delegates equally.

Michigan was stripped of its democratic delegates for moving up its primary. The Democratic National Committee, chaired by Howard Dean, is who punished the candidates. They said they will not pay for a new primary. Another option presented was to have the candidates pay for it. Neither candidate endorsed that option.
