Anti-Hillary movement heats up as Sanders set to fight at convention, fight for superdelegates

Hillary Clinton will officially claim enough delegates but socialist and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders will continue to fight on as the anti-Hillary movement seems to be growing. Sanders insists that the convention will be contested because he is still lobbying superdelegates.

Clinton leads Sanders with 1,812 to 1,521 in delegates, but also has 571 superdelegates to only 48 for Sanders.

“It is extremely unlikely that Secretary Clinton will have the requisite number of pledged delegates to claim victory on Tuesday night,” Sanders said. “Now, I have heard reports that Secretary Clinton has said it’s all going to be over on Tuesday night. I have reports that the media, after the New Jersey results come in, are going to declare that it is all over. That simply is not accurate.”

“Any objective analyst of the current campaign understands that the energy and the grass-roots activism of this campaign is with us,” Sanders bellowed to supporters ahead of the final day of primaries, putting an emphasis on that last word. “Not Hillary Clinton.”

“My view is we have got to take on Wall Street, not take their money,” Sanders said as the crowd erupted.

Sanders opened a new line of attack against Clinton, criticizing donations made by foreign governments while she was secretary of state to the Clinton Foundation, the organization founded by former President Bill Clinton.

“If you ask me about the Clinton Foundation, do I have a problem when a sitting secretary of state and a foundation run by her husband collects many millions of dollars from foreign governments, governments which are dictatorships?” Sanders said.

“You don’t have a lot of civil liberties or democratic rights in Saudi Arabia,” he told the interviewer, Jake Tapper, over the weekend. “You don’t have a lot of respect there for opposition points of view for gay rights, for women’s rights. Yes, do I have a problem with that? Yes, I do.”

“Republicans win elections when people are demoralized, when they give up, and they don’t vote,” Sanders said at the Sunday evening event.

Sanders asserted that he is the best candidate to oppose Trump in the general election, citing recent polls that show “we beat him and we beat him badly.”
