before then. I am sure it is just a MERE COINCIDENCE. Funny how that seems to happen a lot with the Clintons.

Here is the e-mail from his campaign:

Bernie Sanders for President

Athena -

When we started this campaign, we were down almost 50 points in New York —
the state where Hillary Clinton was elected to two terms in the U.S. Senate.

We didn’t get the victory we had hoped for this evening, but what’s
important is that it looks like we’re going to win a lot more delegates in
New York than any state that voted or caucused before tonight.

So what does that mean? Five important states vote one week from tonight,
with more delegates at stake than Hillary Clinton led by coming into
tonight. And if we do well next Tuesday, we remain in a position to take the
pledged delegate lead when almost 700 delegates are up for grabs on June 7.

As you read this, thousands of supporters are responding to tonight’s
results with contributions because they believe we can win. I need to know
if I can count on you to add yours.

Match your previous contribution to our campaign tonight, and we are going
to have the resources we need to do very well next week and to take the
pledged delegate lead on June 7.

Or, donate another amount [secure.actblue.com]

From the day we started this campaign, the corporate media counted us out.
The political establishment and financial elite organized against us. But
every great movement in American history faced many of the same obstacles
and eventually won because of a simple, timeless human truth: when people
come together, when they stand together even through adversity, they win.

And so will we. Add your contribution here. [secure.actblue.com]

In solidarity,

Bernie Sanders

He accused the Clinton campaign and down-ballot Democrats of campaign finance irregularities...sent his smarmy lawyer and then fund -raised off of it...he got the idea from a politico hatchet piece.

On MSNBC just now, Sanders’s campaign manager, Jeff Weaver, was asked whether his candidate would stay in the race even if Clinton had the pledged delegate and popular vote lead at the end of the primary season. He said yes. Steve Kornacki then asked Weaver if he would use the weeks between the California primary and the Philadelphia convention to “pick off” super delegates. Weaver said yes. On the one hand, what do you expect a campaign manager to say? But it was still somewhat stunning to hear Weaver put it in such stark terms.

Although that does seem as if they are backing down from the idea of going to the convention or even going to California.
