Cenk Uygur of the Young Turks points out the ambiguities and simply WTH moments at Nevada’s state convention on May 14. Here’s the statement that accompanies his video report:
The establishment of the Democratic Party is doing everything they can to silence Bernie Sanders supporters. The recent convention in Nevada is another example, as the party voted in new rules, by ignoring Bernie Sanders voters. Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.
“Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Saturday again won Nevada at the state Democratic convention, after her opponent, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, scored a surprise delegate victory out of the county conventions last month.
There was palpable tension between the two camps throughout the day at the Paris Hotel in Las Vegas, with Clinton supporters barely outnumbering those supporting Sanders among the more than 3,400 conventiongoers. Still, a 33-person delegate lead was enough to sway the division of a dozen delegates who were up for grabs Saturday in her favor.
Who would win the majority of those delegates remained uncertain going into Saturday because Sanders was allotted more delegates to the state convention. In April, Sanders had turned out more of his supporters to the county conventions — even though Clinton had won the popular vote in the February caucuses — thus allowing him to send more delegates to the state convention.”
