A gathering for California delegates at the Democratic National Convention took a chaotic turn Monday morning as Bernie Sanders delegates booed and chanted over speakers. At a breakfast for California’s 551 delegates, Sanders supporters made their ongoing support for the candidate known with T-shirts, “Bernie or Bust” signs and loud jeers every time presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton or her newly announced running mate, Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.), was mentioned. Progressive favorites like U.S. Reps. Mike Honda and Barbara Lee, both from California, were at times drowned out by chants of “Bernie!” or jeers when they advocated for party unity/Huffington Post. More here.
