(CNN) – Bernie Sanders triumphed over Hillary Clinton in Indiana Tuesday — and reiterated his vow to fight on to the end of the Democratic primary despite his “narrow” path to the party nomination.
“It’s an uphill fight for us. But you know what? I started this campaign 60 points behind Secretary Clinton. We’ve been fighting uphill from day one,” the Vermont independent told CNN’s Jake Tapper and Dana Bash in an interview after winning Indiana’s primary.
“We will continue to fight uphill and I think we still have a narrow path toward victory.”
Sanders needs more delegates to win than are available in the remaining contests, meaning he would need supredelegates to support him in order to win the nomination.
With 93% of precincts reporting in Indiana Tuesday night, Sanders led Clinton 52.4% to 47.6%.
