Though Hillary Clinton has earned enough primary delegates to clinch the Democratic nomination for President, Bernie Sanders’ supporters promise to continue causing trouble for America’s first female (presumptive) Presidential nominee.
Adam Goodman and Democratic strategist Joe Lestingi joined host Adam Housley on Fox News’ Strategy Room to discuss the future of the primary races now that the presumptive nominees are established.
“Bernie Sanders didn’t represent, in this situation, a campaign. He’s a movement,” said Goodman, noting the strength of Sanders’ supporters and the draw of an “outsider” candidate.
“Already, we’re seeing the outlines of the race to come,” Goodman continued, saying there are three combatants in the race to come. “You’ve got President Obama, who is running for legacy. You have Hillary Clinton running for the White House and Bernie Sanders running for change.”
“It’s very clear that this is a referendum on the system, and whether she likes it or not Hillary Clinton and President Obama are that system. In the courtroom of public opinion, I’d rather be in the prosecutor’s seat than the defense,” said Goodman.
