Shouting match breaks out at DNC ‘unity’ breakfast event

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Tensions boiled over Tuesday at the Texas delegation’s breakfast at the Democratic National Convention.

Russell Lytle, a Bernie Sanders delegate, took the stage and suggested condemning “our currently presumptive nominee” during what was billed as a “unity event.”

A shouting match ensued including calls of “grow up!” It took several minutes for Hillary Clinton supporters to calm things down.

Lytle later released a statement saying that in a moment of “passion,” he expresed thoughts that didn’t reflect his intention of “promoting productive dialogue.”

Also, Bernie Sanders has drawn some boos during an appearance before California delegates at the Democratic National Convention.

A few booed Sanders at a delegate breakfast. That’s according to Holly Mitchell, a state lawmaker from Los Angeles who’s a Hillary Clinton delegate.

According to Mitchell, Sanders told the people to boo if they wanted, but to vote for the future of their children.
