Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders vows to remain in the race by persuading Democratic super-delegates to switch support to him from rival Hillary Clinton.

Conceding that he faces a tough road to win 65 percent of pledged delegates remaining in state contests, the Vermont senator said May 1 that he expects nonetheless to continue winning the contests so strongly that superdelegates will renounce the overwhelming support most of them have previously conferred on his rival, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

“It’s a steep hill to climb,” Sanders admitted at the National Press Club Sunday in Washington, DC. “But, at the end of the day the responsibility that superdelegates have is to decide what is best for the country and what is best for the Democratic Party.”

On May 3, Sanders and other remaining candidates face off in another big primary contest in Indiana, where most polls show Clinton with a significant lead over Sanders in the Democratic race and businessman Donald Trump leading his remaining rivals Ted Cruz and John Kasich in the GOP primary. With the stakes especially high for Republicans, Trump continued to mock the Texas senator Cruz as “Lyin’ Ted” and the Cruz camp responded in kind with a TV ad denouncing Trump as a “phony.”
