Sanders Camp: We’ll Flip Superdelegates

Following Bernie Sanders’s New York upset, campaign manager Jeff Weaver appeared on MSNBC to say that even if Hillary Clinton wins all the delegates required to secure the nomination and leads the popular vote, the Vermont senator’s campaign would fight to flip superdelegates all the way to the convention. “It’s going to be an election determined by the superdelegates,” he said, contradicting the campaign’s previous power-by-the people rhetoric. Weaver acknowledged Clinton’s victory in New York, adding it was because of her “special relationship with the people,” but argued “the fact that she did very, very well in New York doesn’t necessarily mean the same thing in these other states.”
