Wait, What? Even After Endorsing Hillary, Sanders Insists He's Still In The Race

Earlier today, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) endorsed Hillary Clinton for president, much to the chagrin of his supporters. After he acknowledged that Clinton had won the nomination, one would assume that this would mean the end of his campaign.

Apparently not. According to a Sanders spokesperson, he's still in it.

From The Atlantic: (emphasis added)

“Secretary Clinton has won the Democratic nominating process, and I congratulate her for that,” Sanders said during a joint appearance with Clinton in New Hampshire clearly aimed at unity. That doesn’t mean, however, that he is ready to formally exit the race. According to a campaign spokesman, Sanders remains a presidential candidate and is not dropping out of the race following his endorsement of Clinton. During the speech, Sanders was quick to remind the crowd that “we have begun a political revolution … and that revolution continues.”

Is this man delusional? He's admitted he lost. This is like a team insisting on playing game five of a best-of-seven series when they lost the first four. Sanders will not be the Democratic nominee (although apparently Dr. Jill Stein is willing to give him the Green Party nom), and he probably won't be president come November. He's got a loyal following--now he needs to do something about it. This is pointless.
