After realignment: 2,386 Clinton, 2,964 Sanders, & 7 uncommitted. 5,357 total.

The Clark County Democratic Convention, which was the next step after February’s presidential caucus in determining Nevada’s 43 delegates, had a lot of controversy associated with it from the beginning. There were even accusations of cheating from both sides. “We caught the Hillary campaign cheating, we caught the Nevada Democratic Party secretary cheating,” said Angie Sullivan, another member of the credentials committee for the Clark County Democratic Convention. “When it was apparent Bernie started winning, they really turned up the heat.”
Sanders supporters significantly outnumbered Clinton delegates by around 600 on Saturday meaning they’ll make up a larger percentage of Clark County’s delegates attending the state convention in May, even though Clinton won in February.
