Sanders: ‘Real Path Toward Victory’ If I Win Washington State
For Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, “everything is coming up Milhouse!” with his big wins today in Alaska and Washington State. Earlier in the day, he told his supporters that wins there were key for his campaign.
“We have now won 11 states. And if there are large turnouts in Washington, Hawaii and Alaska, we have a shot to win three more,” he said to 15,000 of his closest friends in a baseball stadium rally in Seattle.
“I believe that if we win here in Washington, we’re gonna win in California, we are gonna win in Oregon, and we’ve got a real path toward victory!”
