Biden was campaigning for Democratic Senate candidate Catherine Cortez Masto at the time before members of the Culinary Workers’ Union, who booed the protester loudly.
“No, let him go,” Biden said. “Let him go, that’s OK.”
Biden went on to ask the crowd to register and turn out to the polls on election day
“I’ve seen elections decided by a handful of votes statewide,” Biden said.
Another protester tried a similar tactic at Clinton campaign event in Las Vegas Wednesday night and the crowd was not as forgiving, as the individual was tackled by Hillary supporters.
