Washington (AP) Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean says the party is committed to seating Florida's delegates at this summer's convention.

Dean met today with Florida lawmakers to discuss ways of allocating delegates among Barack Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton.

The party stripped Florida and Michigan of their delegates because they ignored party rules and moved their primaries to January.

Dean says the party is “committed to making sure that we do everything in our power to seat a delegation from Florida.”

The party chairman said it was critical that Obama and Clinton were “comfortable with the compromises that have to be worked out.”

Dean says discussions are continuing over Michigan.
