23. He is properly leaving it to the authoritative committee whose job it is to decide this.
He no doubt has made his views be known to the committee members, but apparently feels there are more pressing issues facing our country than spending his time on this. It's important, but there is a process in place to handle the issue.

He has made his views be known that he doesn't think MI & FL should be seated "as is," since they were basically based on name recognition; little known candidates need to campaign to get votes, unlike people with names like Clinton.
