Sanders vows to continue campaign despite setbacks

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Wednesday acknowledged that he was “losing the debate over electability” to his rival for the Democratic presidential nomination, former Vice President Joe Biden, after Biden’s latest primary victories the day before.

Sanders said, however, that it was important for him to continue his campaign because “a strong majority of the American people support our progressive agenda.”

He said he would participate in a debate with Biden scheduled for Sunday. Sanders, who has called for Medicare-for-all, challenged Biden to spell out how he would address pressing problems including access to health care, income inequality, and climate change.

“What are you going to do?” Sanders said as he rattled off the issues.
