Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders is all but acknowledging that Hillary Clinton will be the Democratic presidential nominee, telling C-SPAN "It doesn't appear that I'm going be the nominee."
Sanders is urging the presumptive nominee Hillary Clinton to pick a running mate that he considers to be liberal. He says it would be a "terrible mistake for her to go to a candidate who has roots in Wall Street or has been backed by Wall Street."

Senator Sanders says he expects to speak at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. He says his campaign is trying to create the "most progressive platform" and change the party's use of "superdelegates" who help determine the nominee.
