2020 Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) held a press conference in Vermont Wednesday afternoon.

Sanders was to provide a campaign update after losing “bigly” in Tuesday night’s primaries to fellow contender, Joe Biden.

Despite the fact that once again, Sanders has been unable to amass the delegates needed to clinch the nomination, he vowed Wednesday to continue fighting (at least until Sunday), providing anecdotal evidence of support across the country who really likes him, but will vote for Biden anyway.

Sanders says he has a lock on the youth vote (more on that beneath) and that he looks forward to debating Biden Sunday night. He also went down a laundry list of things he plans to ask Biden, which seems an odd strategy.

In 2016, polls showed failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton ahead of Sanders by 25 points. Sanders ended up winning the state.
