Wisconsin Democrats oust delegate over McCain support......Video Update

By Ryan J. Foley, Associated Press
MADISON — Wisconsin Democrats have ousted a delegate to their national convention for saying she would vote for Republican Sen. John McCain.

The Wisconsin Democratic Party's administrative committee voted today to strip Debra Bartoshevich of her status as a delegate to the Denver convention.

Bartoshevich was elected as a pledged delegate for Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton. But after Clinton dropped out of the race, Bartoshevich told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel she would support McCain.

Bartoshevich says she made the comments during an emotional time and she hasn't made up her mind.

But the party says she violated rules requiring delegates to support its nominee.
