Spokesman: Sanders has no plans to drop out

A spokesman for Bernie Sanders said the Vermont senator plans to continue his Democratic presidential campaign.

Sanders does not plan to drop out “today, or tomorrow, or the next day,” spokesman Michael Briggs said Tuesday, according to Bloomberg News.

{mosads}“He has said that he plans to stay in this through the Democratic convention,” Briggs said on the day of the final Democratic primary,  in Washington, D.C.

The Sanders campaign is still working out what the candidate’s plans will entail until the party’s national convention, which begins July 25.

“We’re meeting with Secretary Clinton this evening and we’ll see how that goes and where things stand after that, and make some decision about the future based on more intelligence about where we’re going,” Briggs said. 

Sanders has repeatedly vowed to stay in the race even after Hillary Clinton won enough delegates to become the presumptive nominee. 

Sanders plans to meet with Clinton on Tuesday and will address his supporters in a live video Thursday evening.

A campaign official said Monday that Clinton “looks forward to the opportunity to discuss how they can advance their shared commitment to a progressive agenda, and work together to stop Donald Trump in the general election.”

Sanders said he will do everything he can to make sure Trump does not make it to the White House. He said Sunday he wants to learn about what kind of platform Clinton will be supporting and then will determine his next steps.

“After we have that kind of discussion and after we can determine whether or not we are going to have a strong and progressive platform,” he said, “I will be able to make other decisions.”
