Police are investigating the Friday incident, a spokesperson told The Hill in a statement. Officials have not identified any suspects or made any arrests. 

“This is not going to be something that deters us, that makes us feel less bold and pushing for the changes that we need to see in our democracy,” Scott said, according to The Associated Press. 

Sanders appeared in Tacoma, Wash. last week in front of thousands of people on his first trip to the state. Washington’s primary will occur on March 10.

Sanders has started strong in the first three races of the primary, winning in New Hampshire and Nevada and coming in second in Iowa. He currently has 31 delegates, although 26 delegates still need to be allocated to candidates from Nevada’s primary on Saturday.
