Sen. Bernie Sanders is holding a press conference in his home state of Vermont to address the presidential campaign following losses in several states on Tuesday, March 10. It is unknown what the Senator plans to discuss or announce.
When: Wednesday, March 11
Time: 1 pm ET
Where: Burlington, Vermont
A defiant Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Wednesday vowed to continue on in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination following a string of dispiriting losses to former Vice President Joe Biden.
Sanders and Biden will square off for their first one-on-one debate of the cycle on Sunday in Arizona, and Sanders said he’d challenge Biden on a host of issues there.
The Vermont progressive acknowledged that he’s losing in the fight for delegates, saying that Democrats are worried that he’s not as electable as Biden. But Sanders is pushing on, saying he’d make the case for his progressive politics even as his losses mounted.
“We have won the ideological debate, but we are losing the debate over electability,” Sanders said from Burlington, Vt. “I cannot tell you how many people our campaign has spoken to who say they agree with us but will vote for Joe because they believe he’s the best to beat Donald Trump. Needless to say, I strongly disagree with that assertion, but that’s what millions of Democrats and independents say. On Sunday, I very much look forward to the debate.”
Biden won big victories on Tuesday night in Michigan, Missouri, Mississippi and Idaho, growing his delegate lead to about 150 over Sanders.
