Many Michigan delegates don't know if they'll be permitted to cast a vote for presumptive presidential nominee Mitt Romney at the upcoming Republican National Convention.

Michigan is one of five states penalized with the loss of half its delegates for breaking Republican National Committee rules by having an early presidential primary.

But, according to a story in The Detroit News on Saturday, instead of keeping half of the delegates home, the Michigan GOP is taking everyone to Tampa, Fla.

The hope is that having the full group of more than 100 delegates and alternates from Romney's native state will snag a spot on the floor for his nomination this coming week.

In an email earlier this month, RNC spokeswoman Kirsten Kukowski said: "Michigan's penalties will stay intact."
