A day after vowing to keep Gary Hart's name off the Florida primary ballot, the chairman of the state Democratic Party said he has changed his mind. "At first I felt a little disappointed and amazed that (former Colorado) Sen. Hart would try to get back on the ballot.

Whitehead told CBS Radio on Saturday.
