Bernie Sanders offered some advice to Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party on Tuesday: Don't be so fast when it comes to ending the primary.
Sanders, down in delegates and the path narrowing in his quest for the Democratic presidential nomination, insisted that after the June 7 contests, Clinton will not have enough delegates to become the party’s nominee.
“No candidate – not Hillary Clinton, not Bernie Sanders – will have received the number of pledged delegates … that he or she needs to become the Democratic nominee,” Sanders, at a rally in Santa Cruz, said Tuesday afternoon.

I certainly never instructed anyone to hide the fact I was using a personal email.

Hillary Clinton criticized Donald Trump on Tuesday for his delayed donations to veterans charities, saying the episode shows the "difference between what Donald Trump says and what Donald Trump does."
The presumptive Republican presidential candidate claimed to have raised the money while campaigning in Iowa earlier this year, but the cash didn't surface until recently, when reporters began investigating whether he ever made the donations he promised.
The Associated Press said half the checks were dated May 24, the same day an article in the Washington Post questioned if the money had been delivered.
Donald Trump uses veterans to further his political goals, not necessarily to help their cause, veterans who support Hillary Clinton said Tuesday after Trump held a news conference to address his donations to military groups.
In a media conference call organized by Clinton’s campaign, a panel of veterans characterized Trump as a “fraud” and a “loose cannon.”
“Trump wouldn’t know the difference between a boomer and a B-52,” said retired Air Force Brig. Gen. John Douglass. “He has no idea about what it means to serve.”
Donald Trump repeatedly lashed out at the media, conservative opponents and Republican foes in a testy news conference Tuesday that he had called to answer criticism over his contributions to veterans’ charities.
Trump reeled off a list of charities that he said had received a total of $5.6 million he had raised. The list came after weeks of questions from reporters and remained short of the $6 million he had promised during a veterans event in January on the eve of the Iowa caucuses.
But the list of charities was at least partially overshadowed by his extensive airing of personal grievances, during which he called one reporter “a sleaze” and labeled a prominent conservative pundit “a loser.”
After carefully avoiding any involvement in the Democratic presidential primary, Gov. Jerry Brown dropped his neutrality – and looked past his bitter history with the Clintons – to endorse Hillary Clinton on Tuesday.
In an open letter to Democrats and independents, Brown urged voters who do not want to see a Donald Trump presidency to stop the infighting and rally behind Clinton, the Democratic front-runner.
“This is no time for Democrats to keep fighting each other,” he wrote. “The general election has already begun.”
The blockbuster Broadway musical “Hamilton” served as a surprisingly apt soundtrack to the Libertarian Convention this weekend, where party faithful gathered in Orlando to pick a presidential ticket.
Gary Johnson, who won the top slot Sunday, opened and closed his speeches to the delegates with a pair of songs from the musical, ironically celebrating the proponent of a central banking system that Libertarians despise. One had the refrain: “I am not throwing away my shot.” The other: “We are outgunned. Outmanned.”
Such is the position Libertarians find themselves in during this unruly election season. The lesser-known party has an unrivaled chance to tap into voters’ dissatisfaction with the likely nominees of the two major parties. But it faces daunting odds in actually capturing the White House.
