Sanders Assures Supporters Nationwide: 'We're Going All the Way to California'

Confronted on multiple weekend news shows over his campaign strategy going forward, Bernie Sanders assured his supporters in no uncertain terms on Sunday that the race for the Democratic nomination is not yet over and that every voter in upcoming state contests will have a chance to have their voice counted ahead of the party’s national convention this summer.

“We’re going all the way to California,” Sanders told George Stephanopolous on ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday morning.

Sanders mentioned his campaign stop in Baltimore, Maryland on Saturday and said the endemic poverty he sees in such cities is a major reason why the status quo of “establishment politics” and “establishment economics” must be overcome.

“The level of poverty there is beyond belief,” Sanders said. “The fact that we have so much income and wealth inequality, the fact that so many of our kids are graduating college deeply in debt, the fact that we’re really not engaging in the planetary crisis of climate change, these are the issues that we need to be debating.”

Maryland—in addition to Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Delaware—all have Democratic primary contests on Tuesday.

“We’re going to take our campaign through California, through the D.C. primary,” Sanders continued. “We’re winning a whole lot of support. I believe that after winning 16 states already, we’re going to win a lot more throughout this process.”

The competitive primary process, Sanders added, “is good for democracy” and “it’s good for the Democratic Party.”

While questions about the “path forward” have swarmed the Sanders campaign since his loss in New York last week, the candidate has attempted to steady the ship by assuring supporters that nothing about his campaign has fundamentally changed. On Sunday’s “Meet the Press” on NBC, Sanders told host Chuck Todd that even though he agrees with his rival Hillary Clinton that there’s certainly much that “unites” those voting in the Democratic primaries, there also remains “a lot that divides” as well. Those distinctions, he indicated, remain important for those who have yet to vote in the primary and will be crucial divides to bridge once the ultimate nominee emerges.

“I think the fact that all of us are in agreement that Donald Trump would be a disaster for this country if he became president unites us,” explained Sanders. “The fact that we understand, for example, that climate change is real while our Republican opponents ignore that reality unites us.”
