Tensions were high between supportersof former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT),the Las Vegas Sun reports. They apparently spilled over on the state convention floor.
People can be seen scuffling, and a woman says into a microphone, “We need a medic in the front, a medic in the front.”
The Sun reports that the Democratic convention in Clark County last month was rocky due to the deep rift between the supporters of the two candidates. Clinton currently leads in the state, though a Sanders supporter was quoted as saying the senator had “won” Nevada after the convention there.
The Democrats were meeting Saturday at the Paris Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, while Republicans were holding their event at the Reno/Sparks Convention Center, both starting at 9 a.m. local time, News3LV reports.
