After meeting with Hillary Clinton for close to two hours on Tuesday night, Bernie Sanders indicated he has no plans to exit the race for president.
The pair met at the Capital Hilton, near the White House, after the final primary contest in D.C. in which Hillary walloped Sanders 78.7 percent to 21.1 percent.
But Sanders, the little socialist engine that has no chance, won’t go away gracefully.
In a statement Tuesday, the Vermont senator called for a “fundamental transformation” of the Democrat party that includes open primaries, an end to superdelegates and the ouster of Debbie Wasserman Schultz as DNC chair, Time Magazine reported.
He vowed to continue the fight at the Democratic convention where he will have “1,900, 2,000 people” as delegates.
“He has said that he plans to stay in this through the Democratic convention,” Sanders campaign manager Michael Briggs told Bloomberg News.
In nearly identical statements after their meeting Sanders and Clinton did agree to work to find a way forward and on the “danger” of a Donald Trump presidency.
