    Sanders promises a contested convention in July.


    Bernie Sanders is promising that he will stay in the race for the Democratic nomination and attempt to win the contest at the Democratic National Convention in July.

    “It’s virtually impossible for Secretary Clinton to reach the majority of convention delegates by June 14 with pledged delegates alone,” Sanders said in remarks to the National Press Club in Washington, D.C on Sunday. The Vermont Senator is going to try to win the Democratic nomination by flipping enough superdelegates — the party officials and others who can vote for whichever candidate they want, regardless of how their home state voted.

    To make his case, Sanders again cited polls saying that he would perform better than Hillary Clinton against Republican frontrunner Donald Trump (and other potential Republican candidates).

    As he as done before, Sanders criticized the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination process. He stressed his belief that he and Clinton should get the votes of superdelegates from the states they won.

    The next nominating contest will be held on Tuesday in Indiana. The final races will be held in June, including the mammoth California primary.

    You must hate Hillary too, most of her platform is pretending to agree with Bernie.

    Posturing. I'll be so glad when Tuesday is over. This is a last gasp attempt to get people to think that he still has a chance.

    He and his surrogates know that after Tuesday it will be pretty hard to justify him staying in unless he pulls off some sort of crazy upset in Cali AND NJ.

    Susan Sarandon was doing some interview, today I think it was, where she was talking about a Hillary indictment being "imminent". The next couple days are going to be a full on hail-Mary by the Sanders camp.

    Susan Saran Wrap is a typical Hollywood limousine liberal...she campaigned and voted for Ralph Nader. Enough said.

    She keeps saying that Trump would be better than Clinton. Smoking pot daily for the last 50 years has clearly taken its toll. :jj:

    You resonate butt hurt. But I doubt Susan Sarandon said that. She's way too far left.
