Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders does not plan on dropping out of the race against Hillary Clinton, telling NPR's "Morning Edition" host Steve Inskeep that he would be staying in the race at least until the Washington, D.C. primary June 14.

"We're going to stay in until the last vote is counted," Sanders said, according to Politico.

The Vermont senator is behind in the race for delegates, but his win in the Indiana primary has apparently given him reason to continue his campaign.

Sanders said he has a "path towards victory" in West Virginia, Oregon, and other states, but he admitted that it would be an "uphill battle" and aims to win in California, which has 546 delegates that will go to the winner of the Democratic primary.

During the NPR interview, Sanders said, "I think we've got some more good victories coming" and he believes superdelegates could also help his campaign, saying "in many cases" the superdelegates supported Clinton before he got in the race.

Sanders called on the superdelegates to "take a hard look" at whether he or Clinton would be a better choice to defeat Donald Trump. Adding, "I think we can make that case."

According to CNN, Clinton is not pressuring Sanders to leave the race, because she needs the excitement his supporters have created. Clinton said she has "a lot of empathy" for Sanders staying in the race, since she did the same thing when she ran in 2008.

"To Secretary Clinton's credit, she won't let anybody start pushing him out," a Clinton supporter told CNN.
