Up until very recently, Bernie Sanders was still insisting that he was taking his fight for the Democratic nomination all the way to the party’s convention.
Now, he seems to have figured out that he’s no longer really in the running.
Sanders: ‘It Doesn’t Appear That I’m Gonna Be The Nominee’
Bernie Sanders acknowledged Wednesday that he will likely not be the Democratic nominee for president, as aides privately conceded that his future in the race remains in flux.
When asked in an interview with C-SPAN’s Steve Scully if he would be speaking at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia this July, Sanders paused before answering.
“Well, you know it’s hard to say, it doesn’t appear that I’m gonna be the nominee, so I’m not gonna be determining the scope of the convention,” admitted the Vermont senator, two weeks after former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was projected to be the Democratic Party’s presumptive nominee.
This doesn’t mean his supporters have given up, however.
Expect lots of them to show up at the Democratic convention next month. They feel the primary process was rigged in Hillary Clinton’s favor and they’re pretty much right about that.
