Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders says he still has a “path toward victory” in his Democratic presidential bid against Hillary Clinton and is rejecting suggestions that she has all but sewn up the party’s nomination.
Sanders says in an interview with The Associated Press that he doesn’t believe Clinton has “an insurmountable lead.” He says Clinton has done “phenomenally well in the Deep South and in Florida” but “we’re out of the Deep South now.”
Sanders says he won’t seek a recount of results in Tuesday’s primary in Missouri, saying it was unlikely the results will affect how the delegates will be allocated.
Clinton’s win in Missouri means she won all five of Tuesday’s Democratic primary contests.
She also beat Sanders in Florida, Ohio, Illinois and North Carolina.
