(THE HILL) — Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders said on Sunday that front-runner Hillary Clinton is “jumping the gun” when she says she is going to be the party’s nominee.
“Well, I think she might want to talk to the people of Indiana, West Virginia and Oregon, who voted very strongly for me in the last three contests; people of Kentucky, who kind of split the delegates; and I think we’re going to do very well in the nine remaining contests,” Sanders said on ABC’s “This Week.”
“We understand that we have about 46 percent of the pledged delegates,” he said. “In order to get 50 percent, we're going to have to do very, very well in the remaining nine contests. I think we have a shot. It's going to be an uphill climb, but I think we have a shot to do that. We're going to fight as hard as we can for every delegate and every vote.”
