Tuesday evening after winning the Democratic presidential primary in Indiana, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) said he “can pull off one of the great political upsets in the history of the United States,” by defeating Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton in the primary and going on to defeat the presumptive Republican nominee, Donald Trump in the general election in November.
Sanders said, “So We feel great about tonight, not only in winning here in Indiana, in accumulating some more delegates. But also in gaining the momentum we need to take us to the finish line.”
He continued, “I sense some great deal of momentum. I sense some great victories coming, and I think while the path is narrow — and I do not deny that for a moment — I think we can pull off one of the great political upsets in the history of the United States and in fact become the nominee for the Democratic Party and once we secure that position, I have absolute confidence that we are gonna defeat Donald Trump in the general election.”
