There were some boos at the Bernie Sanders supporters’ primary watch party as the projections showed Hillary Clinton winning the Democratic primary in New York state.

Joanna Radzimowski of Syracuse said she is disappointed with the Sanders defeat.

“I have hope that the rest of America is going to see the light and understand that Bernie is really the best candidate for us, for our future," Radzimowski said. "He started a revolution and it is not ending with this.”

But Radzimowski said she would support Hillary Clinton if she wins the Democratic nomination.

Criticism of clashes between Donald Trump Supporters and opponents of the Republican candidate for president, has led to a unique dynamic at Trump rallies. It was no different in Trump’s turn in downtown Syracuse Saturday, when his speech was broken up several times by protesters who had to be led out of the venue.

The Syracuse for Sanders campaign is shifting into high gear as the April 19 New York presidential primary approaches. And, volunteers are doing it on a shoestring budget.

One of the way the Sanders campaign is trying to distance itself from Hillary Clinton, is by refusing so-called “big money” donations. The average contribution, according to the Sanders campaign, is $27. In central New York, that doesn’t leave a lot of cash for expensive billboards and TV ads. So the local campaign has turned to a cheaper form of advertising -- buses.

Hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers may be left out of the Empire State's presidential primary this April because it's closed, meaning only registered Democrats and Republicans can participate. The New York League of Women Voters' legislative director Barbara Bartoletti said that leaves out voters who are registered under third parties.

"We want people to participate in their government," Bartoletti said." We want people to vote and its depressing that we have set up so many barriers in New York State to disallow all of the very well informed."
