CNN reporter-

Jeff Zeleny ‏@jeffzeleny 11m11 minutes ago
Asked why he came back to Vermont tonight, @BernieSanders said it has been a few weeks: "I need to get recharged and take a day off."

Jeff Zeleny ‏@jeffzeleny 12m12 minutes ago
"I congratulate Secretary Clinton on her victory," @BernieSanders says on conference call now,but says he's concerned about chaos at polls


There it is- Is that it? He's going to go CT on the whole thing.

Andrea Mitchell says this is the first time he's left the Nat'ls behind.

7. Anyone who has traveled extensively for work can understand how exhausting the campaign trail is.

I don't begrudge any politician who wants to take a day off to rest and recharge, especially if that politician has been campaigning nationally essentially non-stop for months like the two Dem candidates have.

5. The only "chaos at the polls" were his non-Dem supporters demanding provisional ballots.

He is so ungracious in defeat. Maybe he's still jet-lagged from his jaunt to Rome.

12. If he'd just read 538 then he wouldn't get so confused.

Shoot, it was only 538 and the bookies that was calling BO correctly.

Danny Freeman

After abt a 4 minute avail, @BernieSanders took only a few questions, denying to answer one, and insisted there is still a path to victory.
