Die-hard Sanders' backers divided on backing Clinton

Bernie Sanders was on to something when he suggested the Democratic primaries and caucuses were rigged against him.

Sanders was among those due to speak on the first evening of the convention.

She concluded her remarks, saying, "You will see me every day until November 8 on the campaign trail".

The Times reported, "Mrs. Clinton's campaign manager, Robby Mook, argued on ABC's "This Week" that the emails were leaked "by the Russians for the objective of helping Donald Trump citing 'experts" but offering no other evidence".

Her next hurdle will be Democratic primary challenger Tim Canova, who has been playing up the fallout at the DNC after leaked emails revealed an apparent anti-Bernie Sanders bias inside the soon-to-be-ex chairwoman's shop.

Behind the scenes, Sanders and his campaign tried to persuade his delegates not to disrupt the proceedings. Others said they simply couldn't support Clinton.

Yet many die-hard backers of Sanders they weren't ready to coalesce around Clinton's presidential bid despite his pleas.

People waving signs emblazoned with the word "email" were booing and shouting at Wasserman Schultz as she took the stage Monday as a featured speaker.

Although Wasserman Schultz is leaving her DNC post, Clinton says she will serve as honorary chair of her campaign's "50-state program to gain ground and elect Democrats in every part of the country, and will continue to serve as a surrogate for my campaign nationally, in Florida, and in other key states". Solomon said some of the 1,900 Sanders delegates in Philadelphia were discussing staging a protest on the convention floor during Clinton's nomination acceptance speech on Thursday, although it was unclear what the protest might be.

"I'm really annoyed", said MI delegate Bruce Fealk.

As head of the party, Schultz is supposed to be neutral.

Lingering bitterness from the heated primary campaign between Clinton and Sanders erupted after more than 19,000 Democratic National Committee emails, leaked on Friday, confirmed Sanders' frequent charge that the party played favourites in the race. He said the Sanders campaign had not contacted his group to encourage them to not protest.

"No, never, not in a million years, no".

Benjamin Jealous, the former NAACP leader who led the Sanders campaign effort in Maryland, agreed.

"We know that the voices in this room that are standing up and being disruptive, we know that is not the Florida we know".

Earlier, at a raucuous meeting with his delegates, Sanders implored them to get behind Clinton and her running mate, Virginia Sen. But his appeals elicited a mix of boos and cheers, as delegates shouted, "We want Bernie!"

"The bottom line is it's the states that decided, it's the voters in the states who decided who is going to be the nominee, and I don't think any of those emails had any impact on the outcome". "We've worked hard as a movement". "It gave us validation for what we've been saying for several months".
