Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders delegates clashed over their candidates at their breakfast Tuesday morning. Sanders supporters got up on stage to try to unite in moving forward and spoke hopefully of dialogue with Clinton supporters. But then one of the Sanders delegates took a turn against the presumptive nominee.

“We want to be clear,” Russel Lytle said. “We are currently condemning our current presumptive nominee.”

 

Clinton backers quickly started shouting “shame” and “get off the stage.”

 

The two chairs of Clinton and Sanders Texas campaigns tried to calm the crowd down and urged unity.

 

Lytle apologized in a statement and also voluntarily withdrew his credentials.

 

The divide was evident on day one of the convention when Sanders supporters constantly booed while speakers took the main stage. Sanders told the audience in his primetime speech Monday night they needed to unite behind Clinton to beat Donald Trump. Sanders will speak at the Texas delegate breakfast Wednesday morning.
