Bernie Sanders Not Dropping As Electoral Math Gets Harder, Campaign Confirms

by David Lindfield

Bernie Sanders is remaining in the Democratic presidential primary despite a weak showing on “Mini Tuesday.”

Sanders’ presidential campaign press secretary Briahna Joy Gray took to Twitter to confirm she and the campaign were optimistic about the remainder of the primary process.

She noted there was another debate to look forward to as well as many more primary contests.

“I, for one, am extremely excited about this debate all the moderates are panicking about,” she wrote in a tweet, referencing the debate scheduled for this Sunday in Arizona.

Gray also said the delegate math was possible despite Sanders falling further behind.

While results are still coming in, Biden was declared the winner in four of the six primary contests on Tuesday. He won: Idaho, Michigan, Mississippi, and Missouri.

Sanders picked up a win in North Dakota while Washington is still up in the air (33 percent for Biden, 33 percent for Sanders with 69 percent reporting).

“The delegate count difference is only about 150 points out of 4051 total. America finally gets to see Biden defend his ideas, or lack there of, on Sunday,” she added.

The Washington Examiner reports:

Gray’s tweets come as a surprise after Sanders’s resounding loss in Michigan, a state he narrowly won against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in 2016. His victory there during the last primary cycle was thought to indicate his strength among white working-class voters in swing states.

On Tuesday, CNN, the host of the debate, said the event would be held without a live audience. Since Sanders’s poor performance on Super Tuesday, individuals close to the campaign have repeatedly said they believe Sunday’s debate would change the trajectory of the race.

Several Sanders supporters similarly expressed optimism that their candidate could turn around the primary process:
