Sanders Could End Up Winning More NV Delegates than Clinton after Tumultuous Caucus Vote

HeadlineApr 04, 2016

In a surprising reversal in Nevada, Sanders could actually end up winning the majority of Nevada delegates, even though Hillary Clinton won the first round of the Nevada caucus in February. On Saturday, Sanders won the support of 55 percent of the delegates at county-level voting. These delegates will now head to the state convention on May 14, which will determine Nevada’s final delegate count. Saturday’s county-level caucuses in Nevada were marked by turmoil, especially at the largest convention in Clark County, where Hillary Clinton’s campaign tried at the last minute to oust a top official who supports Sanders. The credentials chair staged a sit-in in the middle of the convention after the Clinton campaign accused her of sharing sensitive information with the Sanders campaign and demanded she be removed. In response, the credentials chair said the Clinton campaign was trying to change the caucus rules at the last minute and that she had only included the Sanders staffers on an email so that both campaigns would have the same information.
