Sanders Says He’ll Win Most ‘State-By-State’ Delegates

“I think it’s fair to say that we’ll probably win most of our delegates in the struggle state-by state,” Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders says.

  • Sanders, speaking from DNC Summer Meeting in Minneapolis, responds to question about Bloomberg Politics report that fellow contender Hillary Clinton has backing of ~20% of so-called superdelegates needed to secure party nomination
  • NOTE: Superdelegates aren’t selected through state primary/caucus process; can change their support
    • Sanders suggests superdelegates currently committed to Clinton could change allegiances as the race goes on: “It’s one thing for people to say I’m with the secretary today. We’ll see where they are three months from now”
