PHILADELPHIA (AP) -

Die-hard Bernie Sanders supporters from Oregon's delegation say they're demanding a nationally televised apology at the Democratic National Convention before Hillary Clinton takes the stage Thursday night to accept the presidential nomination.
    
The matter involves leaked emails from the Democratic National Committee that indicated party officials were biased against the Vermont senator.
    
The DNC has apologized and the party's leader, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, is resigning her post.
    
But Melissa Pancurak tells The Associated Press that those steps don't go far enough. She says the Oregon delegates are part of a coalition of Sanders supporters working to get their demand to appropriate DNC officials before Clinton's speech.
