Options dwindling, Sanders says race isn’t over

🕐 1 min read

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Bernie Sanders is urging his supporters to keep fighting despite the “narrow path” to the Democratic nomination.

The Vermont senator’s fundraising has dropped off and he has shed hundreds of staffers. With a clear delegate lead, Hillary Clinton has turned her focus to the general election and presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump. Even President Barack Obama is noting the realities of the delegate math.

But Sanders hopes he can turn things around by winning primaries in West Virginia, Kentucky, Oregon, California and New Jersey between Tuesday and June 7. Sanders is trailing Clinton by nearly 300 pledged delegates.

Sanders would need to win 66 percent of the remaining pledged delegates to catch up to Clinton by the end of the primaries in mid-June.
