Weeks after Democratic voters in Nevada held their presidential caucus, the result changed in the favor of Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders during the party's convention Saturday - and now appears poised to win the state.
Even though his opponent, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, was declared the winner after the February 20 election, the convention this weekend determined which delegates go to another convention in May - and Sanders hit the jackpot by taking away Vegas from Clinton's win column.
According to the Bernie Sanders campaign in a recent tweet this made the Arizona Primary look "Well-run, and honest"
"At the Clark County Nevada Democratic Convention, where some tried to depose a neutral offical. Police were called to remove overflow are after only 6600 seats were provided for 8900 delegates. There's going to have to be a real examination about Nevada as one of the first four nominating contests at the convention this summer. Makes Arizona look well-run and honest."
Do you think there was fraud in Nevada?
According to the article
The county convention was rife with controversy, from rumors that Sanders delegates were threatened with arrest if they showed up, allegations that the county party was sharing information with the Clinton campaign, and attempts by her supporters to get an official fired for sharing information with the Sanders campaign.
“We caught the Hillary campaign cheating, we caught the Nevada Democratic Party secretary cheating,” credentials committee member Angie Sullivan said. “When it was apparent Bernie started winning, they really turned up the heat.”
The Credentials Committee for the Clark County convention decides who qualifies as a delegate. It is made up of four members and two representatives for Clinton and Sanders.
The true opinion of the people won out today.
