The Democratic Party this weekend is expected to resolve the uncertainty over whether Michigan's 156 delegates will be seated at the party's national convention. The state was told that its delegates would not be seated because it violated party rules by holding an early primary. Michigan's Democratic leaders are going to Washington this weekend with a plan for restoring its delegates.

Rick Pluta reports from Michigan Public Radio.
