Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton won Nevada at Saturday's state Democratic convention in Las Vegas. Of the 35 pledged delegates that Nevada will send to the National Convention this summer, 20 will support Clinton and 15 will support Bernie Sanders. 

That's because slightly more delegates showed up at this weekend's event in support of Clinton.

Megan Messerly, a political reporter for the Las Vegas Sun, covered the event where tensions were running high.
