Sen. Bernie Sanders faced a lot of pressure to end his campaign when one primary loss after another stacked up in March, but he refused. Now, he’s turned up on “Late Night with Seth Meyers” to explain why he's staying in the race. 

“We’re about 300 delegates behind—Biden has 1,200 and we have 900,” Sanders told host Seth Meyers. “There is a path. It is admittedly a narrow path.

“But I would tell you, Seth, that there are a lot of people who are supporting me,” he continued. “We have a strong grassroots movement who believe that we have got to stay in, in order to continue the fight, to make the world know that we need ‘Medicare for All,’ that we need to raise the minimum wage to a living wage, that we need paid family and medical leave. One of the crises that we’re dealing with right now that we must address, climate change and education, all the issues that we have been talking about.

Sanders went on to say he’s staying in the race because having a campaign is one of the best ways to raise public awareness about the issues he’s championed, which is why he said he’s interested in having at least one more debate with Biden.
