When Bernie Sanders scheduled an annoucement Wednesday morning, many believed he was about to drop out of the race for the Democratic presidential nomination. But Sanders surprised them by saying he will stay in and keep battling former vice president Joe Biden.

WVXU Senior Political Analyst Howard Wilkinson talked with News Director Maryanne Zeleznik about Sanders' decision to soldier on, although the odds are very much against him. Sanders still has a path to the nomination, Wilknson says, but it is a very narrow one indeed.

Howard Wilkinson is in his 50th year of covering politics on the local, state and national levels.
