“Right now, I am running to become president of the United States, and I hope very much, Chuck, you will be asking her that question,” Sanders said Sunday during an interview with Chuck Todd on NBC’s "Meet the Press."

During an interview last Thursday on the progressive web show “The Young Turks,” Sanders said Clinton would need to support a $15 per hour minimum wage to earn his support, along with backing tougher regulations of the finance industry and closing corporate tax loopholes.

But Sunday, a day after Sanders swept three Western states, Sanders said he’s focusing on winning the Democratic nomination.

“It’s too early to talk about that right now,” Sanders said when asked about supporting Clinton. “We have a lot of momentum. We’re focusing on Wisconsin, New York state. We have a path to victory, and we’re going to win this nomination process.”
