(Atlantic.com) The presidential candidate vowed to “fight for a progressive party platform” at the Democratic National Convention despite a series of defeats in the Northeast.
Bernie Sanders won’t admit defeat, but the presidential hopeful is signaling a clear shift in strategy.
After a string of primary contest losses in Northeastern states, Sanders vowed to stay in the race “until the last vote is cast.” Notably, however, he made no promise to actually win the presidential nomination in a statement released by the campaign on Tuesday evening. Instead, Sanders declared he would “fight for a progressive party platform” at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia this summer. Atlantic
