Security guards were turning people with passes away from Hillary Clinton’s speech tonight, telling them that the hall was so packed fire marshals were threatening to shut down the whole facility.

Hours before Clinton spoke, the cheap seats were already filled with her supporters, and at least 10 minutes before she took the stage the actual Pepsi Center hall was closed, forcing supporters to gather around televisions placed on the concourse. That didn’t stop them from shooting photos of the screen and cheering her expressions of support for former rival Barack Obama.
