Bernie Sanders

Bernie Sanders is staying in the race until the last primary and the nation will be better off for it, he told NPR's Steve Inskeep in an interview that will air Thursday on Morning Edition.

Inskeep, passing on questions he had invited on Twitter, asked Sanders if he is "threatening [his] revolution" by continuing to run, potentially scaring some voters away from supporting Hillary Clinton — the likely Democratic nominee — in November.

New York voters enrolled in a party are going to the polls today to choose their presidential candidates.


      Hillary Clinton scored a tight victory over Bernie Sanders in the Massachusetts Democratic presidential primary Tuesday. Supporters of both candidates came together last night to talk unity in the wake of a hard-fought campaign.

The race was so close that the Associated Press did not call the Massachusetts primary for Clinton until shortly before midnight, almost four hours after the polls closed.  The unofficial results with more than 95 percent of the state’s precincts reporting had Clinton with 50.3 percent of the vote to 48.5 percent for Sanders.


        Hillary Clinton barnstormed into western Massachusetts today for a get-out-the-vote rally on the eve of the Massachusetts Democratic presidential primary on Super Tuesday.

Clinton began the 24-hour countdown to the polls and caucus sites opening in more than a dozen states with a Monday morning address to a crowd of about 400 people packed into the community room at the Museum of Springfield History, where she asked voters in western Massachusetts to support her tomorrow.
