Jeff Weaver: "The Voters Have Spoken" If A Candidate Enters Convention With Plurality Of Delegates

|

Jeff Weaver, senior adviser to Bernie Sanders' campaign, called Michael Bloomberg "unfit to serve" in his argument for the Democratic party to give the presidential nomination to the candidate with the plurality of delegates.

"If any of those other folks walk in with the plurality the voters have spoken, and the voters should be heeded," Weaver said on MSNBC Monday.

CRAIG MELVIN, MSNBC: There is talks, as you know, of a brokered convention considering the size of the Democratic field, the fact that folks aren't dropping out like perhaps some folks thought they would by now. You know the magic number. If Senator Sanders walks into the convention with a plurality of delegates but not the 1,991 needed, will he let the process play out or will he demand the nomination?

JEFF WEAVER, SANDERS CAMPAIGN: Well you can't -- there is a process. The process has to play out. The question is what the players within that process decide to do. If Senator Sanders walks in there or, frankly, if Joe Biden walks in there, let's use another name, Joe Biden walks in there, Pete Buttigieg, Elizabeth Warren or Amy Klobuchar -- I don't think it will be Mike Bloomberg because he demonstrated on the stage last week that he's unfit to serve. But if any of those other folks walk in with the plurality the voters have spoken, and the voters should be heeded.
