Nevada Dem Convention Devolves into Chaos

Saturday’s Nevada Democratic convention was tense as Bernie Sander’s supporters demanded recounts over and over.

The Hill reports:

The convention ended, hours behind schedule, on a contentious note, with a delegate credentials committee member reading a minority report that said nearly 64 Sanders delegates were excluded from the convention process. A Democratic National Committee (DNC) member said the report would be submitted to the DNC.

Clinton ended up getting seven additional delegates, with Sanders winning five.

Clinton won Nevada’s caucuses in February, picking up 13 delegates to Sanders’s 10. Another 12 bound delegates are slated to be allocated at the state’s convention Saturday.

But the state’s contests have been followed by controversy, with Sanders winning the Clark County convention last month despite losing the caucuses overall.
