Jefferson City, MO (AP) – Missouri delegates to the Democratic National Convention got a surprise visit from Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.
State Democratic Party Chairman Roy Temple says he spotted Sanders on Tuesday morning in the Philadelphia hotel that Missouri delegates share with those from Illinois and Kansas. So he invited Sanders into their breakfast.
Temple says Sanders repeated his call for delegates to rally behind his former presidential rival, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
On Monday, similar suggestions drew boos from many Sanders supporters.
But Temple says that didn’t occur during Sanders’ speech Tuesday to Missouri delegates.
