CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Some leaders of the Wyoming Democratic Party say they have become caught up in the battle between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders for the presidential nomination.

Mary Hales, of Casper, says she’s received nasty calls and letters from out-of-state Sanders supporters upset with her earlier pledge to support Clinton. Hales is a member of the Democratic National Committee representing Wyoming and a national convention delegate.

Hales says there were no specific threats to do her harm, but she felt threatened by the calls and letters. She did not complain to the police.

State party Executive Director Aimee Van Cleave says she’s received threats and nasty comments also, but she’s not sure who is behind them.

Wyoming Democrats are holding their state convention this weekend in Cheyenne.
