After rowdy voters shouted down Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) during her keynote at the Nevada Democratic convention over the weekend, the senator said Wednesday the rowdy crowds made her feel frightened for her personal safety.
“It was a scary situation. I was there, I saw it,” Boxer said in an interview on CNN. “It was frightening. I was on the stage and people were six feet away from me. And if I didn’t have a lot of security, I don’t know what would have happened.”
Pressed about whether she felt physically threatened, Boxer responded she told Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) as much during a recent conversation after the convention.
“When you have people not listening to a word and angry, their faces red. They were shouting obscenities,” Boxer said. “It was a frightening situation. It was not under control.”
She also said the treatment she received was “nothing” compared to the “vile threats” the Nevada Democratic Party chair has received from angry Sanders supporters, who say the convention rules gave Clinton an edge.
