Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has said he is more legitimate than the former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in winning the Democratic nomination
The presidential hopeful told NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday that his win in three Western caucus contests will prove to the super delegates that he is the best candidate to defeat his counterpart and Republican front-runner Donald Trump in the November election.
Sanders said he has a legitimate chance to defeat former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and win the Democratic nomination, he hopes to debate Clinton in New York before the New York State Democratic Presidential primary on 19 April.
Bernie Sanders, the Democratic senator for Vermont, continues to trouble his party’s establishment champion, Hillary Clinton, most recently by winning three, admittedly minor, states; Alaska, Hawaii and Washington by wide margins.
Not only does Mr Sanders reject the free-trade deals that have made America and the world richer, he proposes to penalize successful job-creating companies with higher taxes, and hamstring financial markets with meddling regulations.
Sanders appeared on “Meet the Press” the day after winning the Democratic caucuses in the states of Washington, Alaska and Hawaii.
Significantly, Clinton still holds the overall big lead.
