Bernie Sanders Says: ‘The Democrat Convention will be a Contested Contest’

Posted in: Bernie Sanders (I-VT),Democrats,Liberals,Progressives,Socialist


Self-proclaimed Socialist and Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders stated on Sunday that the Democrats would have a “contested contest.” Sanders stated that it is virtually impossible for Hillary Clinton to get the Democrat nomination with out the aid of super delegates. She cannot do it on pledged delegates alone. It looks like Sanders and his peeps will not be dropping out before the convention, which means there may just be much strife among Democrat voters just like how the MSM constantly reports the Republicans have.

Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders on Sunday said there will be a “contested contest.”

In a news conference from Washington, D.C., on Sunday, the Vermont senator urged superdelegates from states where he has won the majority of the vote to reconsider their support.

“It is virtually impossible for Secretary Clinton to reach the majority of convention delegates by June 14 with pledged delegates alone,” he said.

“She will need superdelegates to take her over the top. The convention will be a contested contest,” he said.

Sanders said during the news conference he expects to do well in the upcoming primaries. Indiana votes Tuesday, where a new poll shows Sanders trailing Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton by 4 points.

Sanders goes after Hillary Clinton’s establishment fixing super delagates.

He said many of the super delegates committed themselves to his rival Hillary Clinton even before Sanders got into the race.

“While we have won 45 percent of the pledged delegates in real campaigns where the people have spoken … we have won only 7 percent of the superdelegates,” he said, contrasting the number of superdelegates he’s secured with how many Clinton has.
