Michigan Supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders have urged the Vermont democratic hopeful to remain in the race to clinch the party’s presidential nomination. The calls came amid reports that Hillary Clinton had already clinched the required minimum number to run for president under the banner of the Democratic Party.
Supporters of Sanders are still hopeful that the senator will be able to secure a last minute win over Clinton when the superdelegates vote on July 25, 2016. The supporters reacted angrily after the Associated Press announced on Tuesday that Hillary Clinton had already clinched the democratic nomination.
However, Bernie Sanders fought back saying that despite the report from Associated Press, he was still in the race until the end. He remained hopeful that he will secure a win at the Democratic National Convention in July. Superdelegates can change their minds a lot between now and July 25. Therefore, Sanders hopes to secure as many superdelegates as he can to be able to run against Donald Trump.
Supporters Still Feeling the Bern
Supporters of Sanders are still firmly behind him despite the fact that he trails behind Hilary Clinton when it comes to support from the party’s delegates. Sanders’ political revolution is aimed at stopping the reign of big money donors who have long been accused of influencing elections and even government policies. He has caused a surprise shake up of the whole Democratic Party. Despite the many huddles in his way, Sanders has proven quite resilient and still a force to be reckoned with in the Democratic Party.
