Senator Bernie Sanders happily announced to his supporters that not only would he win the Democratic Party, but the November 2020 elections against President Donald Trump as well.
This statement was made after he won the Nevada caucuses recently.
Before the caucuses, Sanders had 21 delegates, although he still has a long way to go to become the nominee, this victory in Nevada brings him a step forward his goal.
His win accelerates the momentum that makes him increasingly hard to beat as the presidential nominations moves forward.
Sanders went ahead towards Texas before precinct locations in Nevada adjourned their caucuses so that he may continue with his campaign.
As he stood in front of his cheering supporters in San Antonio, Texas, he said, “I’m delighted to bring you some pretty good news.”
“I think all of you know we won the popular vote in Iowa. We won the New Hampshire primary. And according to three networks and the AP, we have now won the Nevada caucus.”
He continued by saying, “We are going to win here in Texas. We are going to win across the country because the American people are sick and tired of a president who lies all of the time.”
He will be holding two campaign rallies in the Lone Star State on Saturday and another one in Houston on Sunday.
It is projected that he may have a hard time gathering support from the more moderate Democratic electorate.
Sanders have an overwhelming lead so far, with 54 per cent of the delegates with 4 per cent of precincts reporting.
The President is apparently watching the election, and he congratulated Sanders on his win via Twitter before networks announced the outcome of the caucuses.
“Congratulations Bernie, & don’t let them take it away from you!”
Early, Trump repeatedly claimed that the Democratic National Committee is rigging the primary contest against Sanders.
