ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders says "we are going to the convention" during CBS News' 'Face the Nation' program on Sunday (May 22). Sanders is insisting he will stay in the Democratic race, despite front-runner Hillary Clinton suggesting the race was over because of her nearly insurmountable lead in delegates. "I think she may not have noticed that in the last three contests we won, and we tied in Kentucky, and that we have an excellent chance to win a majority of the states coming up in the next two weeks -- six states -- and we think we can win most of them including California," said Sanders on "Face the Nation." "We are going to the convention- at the very least, if we do not end up winning the nomination, we're going to fight to win it," he said. Clinton has said Sanders will have to eventually help her unify the Democratic Party after the prolonged nomination fight. "Donald Trump is a disaster in my view and I will do everything that I can, whether as the candidate or not, to see that he is defeated," said Sanders. Trump became the Republican Party's presumptive nominee in early May, when both of his rivals dropped out of the race.
