Dem. Convention Host Says Sanders Supporters Better ‘Behave’

20160508 Sanders SupporterFormer Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell, who is the head of the host committee for this summer’s Democratic National Convention, says Bernie Sanders supporters need to “behave themselves” when he loses the nomination to Hillary Clinton.

The Hill reports Rendell made the comments during a recent radio interview.

“I think it’s gonna be a great convention, but of course the key to it is the Sanders people. Bernie’s gonna have his name placed in nomination; we’re gonna have a roll call; there’s gonna be a demonstration in support of Bernie; he’s gonna lose the roll call,” he said. “His supporters have to behave and not cause trouble. And I think they will, and I think Sen. Sanders will send them a strong message.”


Sanders trails Clinton by 744 delegates. She is just 155 delegates away from clinching the nomination.
