In just a few weeks, Nevada delegates will journey east for the Republican and Democratic national conventions in Cleveland and Philadelphia. But not all will be representing their party's presumptive nominee. 

Paul Catha has been pulling for Bernie Sanders for more than a year, and that won't change come July 25 when he arrives in Philadelphia as a national delegate.

Nevada Democrats are meeting Saturday for their state convention in Las Vegas. The party's main task is electing presidential delegates. Reno Public Radio's Michelle Billman reports.

Nevada Democrats will send 43 delegates to the national convention in July. During the February caucuses, Hillary Clinton nabbed 13 of them while Bernie Sanders claimed ten. There are also super delegates who are appointed. Right now, more are supporting Clinton. 

Megan Messerly, a political reporter for the Las Vegas Sun, says that for tomorrow, a dozen final delegates are up for grabs.
