In an interview with CBS 11 shortly before the event, Sanders predicted he will win the Texas primary on Super Tuesday March 3.
When asked how he will do that given his tight race with Pete Buttigieg and the fact Mike Bloomberg is spending millions of dollars on TV ads in Texas, Sanders said, “Well, we’re not going to outspend Mr Bloomberg. I think people understand in their heart of hearts it’s not about billionaires buying an election and that’s what he’s doing.”
CBS 11 political reporter Jack Fink: “What do you say to real Democratic voters, not party leaders who are genuinely concerned you’re too far to the left to win a broad enough coalition to beat President Trump?”
Sen. Bernie Sanders: “What I say is in order to beat Donald Trump, we’re going to need the largest voter turnout in the history of this country. Our campaign is in a position to do that.”
