Sanders: ‘Do Not Moan to Me About Hillary Clinton’s Problems’
Bernie Sanders got a little testy on Wednesday when he told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell not to moan to him about Hillary Clinton’s problems.
“Oh, really? Andrea, in every state that we have won, in 19 states, we have had to take on the entire Democratic establishment. We have had to take on senators and governors and mayors and members of Congress, so please do not moan to me about Hillary Clinton’s problems,” Sanders said.
The Hill reports:
He continued to say, as he has in the past, that he will “fight for every last vote that we can get.”
Sanders won Tuesday’s West Virginia primary, but the Vermont senator still faces a daunting climb if he wants to wrestle the Democratic nomination from Clinton, the current front-runner.
Despite losing by double digits on Tuesday night, Clinton has 94 percent of the delegates needed to clinch the nomination. She needs 144 more delegates to meet the 2,383 delegate threshold, according to The Associated Press.
Sanders can’t reach 2,383 delegates without winning over more superdelegates, the party leaders who can vote for any candidate.
However, Sanders continues to say he will remain in the race until the last state votes in the primary.
“I know it’s a steep climb. … We still have the possibility of coming in with the majority of pledged delegates,” Sanders said.
