Sanders pulled no punches as he celebrated his victory in Oregon at an event in California last night. He blamed his loss in Kentucky on closed primaries and called on the Democratic Party to "open the doors" and "let the people in."
"The Democratic Party is going to have to make a very, very, profound and important decision. It can do the right thing and open its doors and welcome into the party people who are prepared to fight for real economic and social change. That is the Democratic Party I want to see," Sanders said.
"I say to the leadership of the Democratic Party: Open the doors, let the people in! Or the other option for the Democratic Party, which I see as a very sad and tragic option is to choose and maintain its status quo structure, remain dependent on big money campaign contributions and be a party with limited participation and limited energy," he said.
