Senator Bernie Sanders is fighting to stay alive in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination, arguing there will be a contested convention.
The senator spoke to reporters over the weekend and explained why the number of delegates versus the number of superdelegates is crucial to securing the Democratic presidential nomination.
Sanders told reporters, “We intend to fight for every vote in front of us and for every delegate remaining.”
The Democratic presidential hopeful also said, “It is virtually impossible for Secretary Clinton to reach the majority of convention delegates by June 14 with pledged delegates alone. She will need superdelegates to take her over the top at the convention in Philadelphia.”
He then added, “In other words, the convention will be a contested contest.”
This past Friday, protesters tried to stop Donald Trump from speaking at the California GOP State Convention.
Thousands of people blocked the entrance to the Hyatt Regency. Many threw bottles, jumped on police cars, and fought Trump supporters. Conditions on the ground got so bad, the GOP front-runner was escorted through the backdoor to avoid the crowds.
Trump is no stranger to angry mobs. Throughout his campaign for the highest office in the land, Trump supporters have attacked protesters, leading to plenty of injuries and a number of arrests.
Trump is promising if he doesn’t get the nomination, his supporters are likely to riot at the convention in Cleveland this summer.
