Hillary Clinton might have unofficially clinched the Democratic nomination last night, but her opponent, Bernie Sanders, is still holding out hope.
Business Insider reports that though it was rumored that Sanders would be laying off half his staff today, the Vermont senator told his supporters that he would be in the race until the final primary in Washington D.C. later this month.
It’s undeniable that the outlook is bleak for the Sanders camp, but his supporters are staying positive. Last night, the hashtag #ThankYouBernie began circulating on social media, giving people an opportunity to express their gratitude for standing by his beliefs.
