Bernie Sanders was denied speaking time at a Spanish-language festival Sunday, according to reporters on the campaign trail with the Democratic presidential candidate. 

Sanders tried to take the stage during an event at Plaza Mexico in Lynwood, Calif., on Sunday afternoon but was rejected. “This is our event,” a staffer told reporters after the incident. 

Sanders is campaigning in California ahead of the state’s Democratic primary on Tuesday. His campaign denied Sunday that the candidate was prevented from speaking.
