Do-over Democratic primary could be run by state

Democratic party leaders are floating yet another idea for a do-over election to get Michigan's delegates seated at the Democratic National Convention.

The latest proposal would involve a state-run Democratic primary that would be held in May or June and would be paid for by Democratic donors.

Michigan was stripped of its Democratic delegates after it moved up its primary to Jan. 15.

A party-run mail-in election also is being considered. But Barack Obama supporters say they don't support that. Hillary Rodham Clinton doesn't like their idea to split the delegates equally.

If the Democrats decide on the state-run Democratic primary, the plan would have to get Republican lawmakers' approval.
