Harry Reid Bernie Sanders, Bernie Sanders needs to recognize that “sometimes you just have to give up,” Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid said Wednesday.
Reid said his fellow senator should not carry his presidential campaign through to the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, as he intends to do.
Instead, Reid said, Sanders needs to recognize that “math is math” after next week’s primaries in California and New Jersey, when Hillary Clinton is expected to rack up enough delegates to effectively clinch the nomination.
“I’ve never been too good at math but I can figure that one out. I think he better do a little mathing,” Reid told The Associated Press in an interview in his home state of Nevada.
Reid, who has endorsed Clinton, stopped short of calling on Sanders to drop out. But he made his views clear in direct and even harsh terms.
