LOS ANGELES (AP) – Bernie Sanders says that the Democratic National Convention will be contested, predicting that neither he, nor his rival Hillary Clinton, will have enough pledged delegates after the primary season ends.

Speaking to reporters in Los Angeles Saturday, just three days ahead of California’s crucial primary, the Vermont senator said that the winner of the Democratic nomination will rely on superdelegates to reach the magic number.

Sanders said it is “not accurate” for the media to lump delegates and superdelegates together, saying that the two play a separate but important role in the Democratic electoral process.

He called the nomination process “deeply flawed,” adding that whether he wins the nomination or not, he will do everything he can to change it.
