Bernie: Neither Candidate Will Get ‘Real Delegates’ to Be Nominee

Bernie Sanders said at a campaign rally in California that neither he nor Hillary Clinton will have the magic number of “real delegates” to win their party’s nomination after voters in the state cast their ballots next Tuesday. “Unless I am very, very mistaken, no candidate—not Hillary Clinton, not Bernie Sanders—will have received the number of pledged delegates—i.e., real delegates that people vote for—neither candidate will have received the requisite number of pledged delegates that he or she needs to become the Democratic nominee,” Sanders said in another jab at the so-called super-delegate process by which party insiders have a say in who becomes the nominee. It is the latest sign that Sanders will take his fight all the way to the Democratic National Convention in July.
