Ohio Sanders supporter says more time needed


CINCINNATI (AP) — A leading Bernie Sanders supporter in Ohio says people are still emotional and frustrated over the outcome of the Democratic presidential nomination race.

Former state Sen. Nina Turner of Cleveland says some Sanders backers also want to see if promises being made will be kept. She appeared Tuesday on MSNBC-TV’s coverage of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.

Not all boisterous Sanders delegates appear ready to embrace Hillary Clinton as their nominee, despite his appeal Monday night that they do so.

Turner says Sanders’ campaign has been “a revolution,” and leaked Democratic National Committee emails have added to frustration for those who felt the party hierarchy impeded him.

Clinton delegate Chris Seelbach (SILL’-bachk) of Cincinnati says he is confident Sanders’ supporters will unite behind Clinton to stop Republican Donald Trump.
