Nevada has learned from the missteps made during the Iowa caucuses and will not be repeating its mistakes, Rep. Dina Titus said Monday. 

"We have had to make some changes," the Nevada Democrat, who backs former Vice President Joe Biden's campaign, told Fox News' "America's Newsroom." "Originally we were going to vote online and the DNC canceled that because of fear of hacking. We learned from Iowa. We're not using the same app. In some places, we're using pen and paper and that seems to be the most simple way to do it."

Titus admitted that at first there were concerns about Nevada's caucuses, set for Feb. 22. 

"Well, Nevada is not Iowa," she said. "We have learned from Iowa. We've been working very hard. The campaigns have more people on the ground who came from Iowa. And so we know that all of the eyes are on us and we have to pull this off. I'm confident we will. We've been doing this for a while and know what it takes and we are going to do it."

Meanwhile, Sen. Bernie Sanders had a good showing in New Hampshire, but there are concerns in Nevada, where unions have negotiated for years for quality or "Cadillac" health plans. 

"They don't want to see a plan go into effect that throws all that effort out the window," said Titus. 

She also commented on reports that Sanders supporters attacked two top leaders of Nevada's most politically powerful union, the casino workers' Culinary Union, through threatening phone calls. 

"Some of Bernie's supporters get quite carried away," said Titus. "You go after the culinary members, they won't appreciate it. They put out a letter saying they don't support Bernie's approach."
