The state Senate has refused to take up legislation that would have restored the names of four Democratic presidential candidates to Michigan's January primary ballot.

Senate Majority Leader Mike Bishop blames Democrats for NOT being on the same page with each other.

Some labor groups that support candidate John Edwards have tried blocking the bill putting the candidates back on the ballot because they still favor a caucus.

Edwards, Barack Obama, Joe Biden and Bill Richardson last month pulled their names from the ballot because the state violated Democratic National Committee rules by moving up its election.
