After losing big to Hillary, Bernie finally sees the writing on the wall. Word is, he's planning to lay off hundreds of campaign staffers across the country and focus much of his remaining effort on winning California.
However, it was revealed that if Hillary lost every state left, she will still get the nomination.
Bernie said he would remain in the race through the party’s summer convention and possibly bring staff members back on board if things got better.
“We want to win as many delegates as we can, so we do not need workers now in states around country. We don’t need people right now in Connecticut. That election is over. We don’t need them in Maryland. So what we are going to do is allocate our resources to the 14 contests that remain, and that means that we are going to be cutting back on staff.”Again, the writing's on the wall.
When asked how many people would be let go, Mr. Sanders didn’t give an exact number but did say many people would be affected.
“It will be hundreds of staff members,” Mr. Sanders said. “We have had a very large staff, which was designed to deal with 50 states in this country; 40 of the states are now behind us. So we have had a great staff, great people.”
