Sanders Statement on Indiana Primary Win

NEW ALBANY, Ind. – U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders issued the following statement on Tuesday after The Associated Press projected that he won the Indiana primary:

“I want to thank the people of Indiana for the great upset victory that they gave us tonight. This is the 18th state that we have won, and we expect more victories in the weeks to come.

"The Clinton campaign thinks this campaign is over. They’re wrong. Maybe it’s over for the insiders and the party establishment, but the voters in Indiana had a different idea. The campaign wasn’t over for them. It isn’t over for the voters in West Virginia. It isn’t over for Democrats in Oregon, New Jersey and Kentucky. It isn’t over for voters in California and all the other states with contests still to come.

“We understand that we have an uphill climb to victory but we have been fighting uphill from the first day of this campaign. We are in this campaign to win and we’re going to fight until the last vote is cast. There is nothing I would like more than to take on and defeat Donald Trump, someone who must never become president of this country.

“The voters in the remaining contests deserve a chance to compare my record and Hillary Clinton’s record on creating jobs, raising the minimum wage, war and peace, the need for health care for all, breaking up big banks, combating climate change and other critical issues. To help voters make the best-informed choice possible, I hope that Secretary Clinton will agree to a date and place for a debate in California.”

Democracy for America (pro-Sanders)

After IN win, DFA says Bernie's movement is "far from over"

Democracy for America's response to Bernie Sanders's big win in Indiana tonight: 

"Bernie's victory in Indiana is a clear indication that, despite the media and the Democratic establishment's reports to the contrary, the Political Revolution that has powered Bernie Sander's improbable rise is far from over.    

"Time and time again, the populist progressive movement behind Bernie Sanders has been knocked down and counted out and, once again, we've shown that our fight to tackle income inequality, stamp out structural racism, and end money's outsized role in our politics isn't going anywhere.

"In the days and weeks ahead, the Political Revolution is going to continue winning states, winning delegates, surprising sceptics, and ensuring that our call for populist progressive change is heard loud and clear in Philadelphia." -- Charles Chamberlain, Executive Director, Democracy for America

Correct the Record (pro-Clinton)


Washington, D.C. – Correct The Record President Brad Woodhouse released the following statement in response to tonight’s Indiana Democratic primary results.

“While Indiana’s Democratic primary electorate was tailor made for Bernie Sanders, tonight’s results do not change the overall delegate math,” said Brad Woodhouse, President of Correct The Record. “Bernie Sanders invested heavily in Indiana to try to put a dent in Hillary Clinton's big lead, but the math remains the same: Secretary Clinton maintains nearly insurmountable leads in both delegates and votes cast. Voters have demonstrated time and time again that they believe in Secretary Clinton’s message of breaking down barriers and creating opportunity for all Americans. It is time for Democrats to join together to keep Donald Trump and his hateful rhetoric and extreme positions from entering the White House.”

Correct The Record is a strategic research and rapid response team designed to defend Hillary Clinton from baseless attacks.
