California Democratic Sen. [crscore]Dianne Feinstein[/crscore] told CNN Wednesday she does not want the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia this summer to be a repeat of the tumultuous 1968 DNC Convention in Chicago.

“Well, It worries me a great deal. I don’t want to go back to the ’68 convention, because I worry about what it does to the electorate as a whole and he should too,” Feinstein said.

Feinstein criticized Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ response to the chaos stirred up by his supporters in Las Vegas during the Nevada Democratic Convention last Saturday, when hostilities broke out between advocates of Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders over the state party’s handling of the delegate allocation process.

Boxer attended the Nevada convention and was summarily booed and drowned by supporters of Sanders during her remarks.

Sanders released a statement Tuesday saying he condemned the violence that happened in Las Vegas but did not apologize for his supporters’ actions.
