I apologize if this has been asked and answered before.

But if both Florida & Michigan knew that their delegates wouldn't count if they held their primaries early, why did they hold them early?

The legislatures approved the move, and I do not think they knew the full extent of the ramifications. The Republican Party simply said that neither state would receive its full allotment of delegates, and the Democrats said something would happen - one being that no candidate could campaign in the states and receive delegates.

The Republicans withheld delegates, but because the race is over its not an issue for them.
