Video: Clinton, Sanders Supporters Court Undecideds at Casino Caucus

Posted By on Sun, Feb 21, 2016 at 2:46 AM

Nearly 300 people showed up Saturday morning to the New York-New York Hotel & Casino to take part in Nevada's Democratic presidential caucuses

Six of them couldn't decide whether to support Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) or former secretary of state Hillary Clinton.

It took the undecideds 12 minutes to make up their minds. During that time, Sanders and Clinton precinct captains lobbied them individually, answered their questions and delivered brief speeches seeking to persuade them. All the while, reporters swarmed around them and activists on either side of the room chanted their respective candidates' names. 

Here's what it looked like:

In the end, the six undecideds split evenly between the two Democratic candidates. 

Overall, 196 people at the New York-New York caucus site supported Clinton, while 97 supported Sanders. Clinton earned 23 county-level delegates, while Sanders picked up 11.
