Capitol Report: In echo of 2016, Bernie Sanders refuses to commit to conceding early if he won’t be the nominee

Bernie Sanders on Wednesday provided a flashback to the 2016 White House race, as the presidential hopeful declined to promise that he will concede ahead of the Democrats’ convention if it becomes apparent that he won’t be the party’s nominee.

When asked by about the potential for such a concession before the Democratic National Convention in July 2020, Sanders told MSNBC anchor Katy Tur: “I intend to be the Democratic nominee.”

Tur then noted that some analysts said Sanders contributed to Hillary Clinton’s loss to President Donald Trump in the 2106 general election, because he refused to drop out of the Democratic primary despite Clinton’s clinching the required number of delegates for the nomination.
