The Nevada State Democratic Party on Monday said Sanders’s backers may instigate “actual violence” at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia this summer.

Sanders on Tuesday called such accusations “nonsense,” adding that the Nevada Democratic Party had unfairly impeded his presidential campaign.
