Florida Do-Over

Bloomberg reported Florida Governor Charlie Crist said he'd support a repeat of the Democratic presidential primary so the state's delegates can be counted at the party's national convention.

He probably does not want a repeat of the 2000 election which went to the Florida AND US Supreme court.
Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean said he's open to the possibility. Primary elections are paid for by a state's taxpayers, so the offer from Crist, a Republican, is "very helpful" because money is an issue, Dean said.
Since the Democratic Party caused the problem, with their rules, is the Democratic Party willing to pay the cost of the new election?
