After Major NY Loss, Bernie Sanders Doesn't Appear to Be Deterred (Video)
Bernie Sanders spoke briefly after losing the New York primary badly to Hillary Clinton, 42.1 percent to her 57.9 percent. Even after holding massive rallies of 20,000+ and outspending Clinton in New York 2-1 on ads, he could not pull off an upset in the closed primary state.
But Senator Sanders is pressing forward. Last night, he returned to Vermont where he held a press conference to address the future of his campaign and congratulate Clinton.
“We lost tonight," he said, adding, "There are five primaries next week, we think we’re going to do well and we have a path toward victory which we are going to fight to maintain.”
“Do you plan to change anything about your campaign after tonight’s loss?” one reporter asked.
“No,” Sanders responded. “We have a message that is resonating through this country. We have come a long, long way.”
Sanders started off 60 points behind Clinton nationally. He is just two points behind Clinton now in recent polling.
