Despite an underwhelming performance in yesterday's primary contests, Bernie Sanders says he remains a contender for the Democratic presidential nomination.

Sanders pointed to Sunday's one-on-one debate with Biden in Arizona as a chance to change the minds of voters who say they like his policy ideas but view Biden as the best option to defeat Trump in November.

Sanders highlighted the generational chasm in the Democratic party, with younger voters skewing more liberal than their older counterparts.

He also warned the Democratic Party against nominating someone who young people do not support. "We are winning the generational debate," Sanders said. "Today I say to the Democratic establishment: In order to win in the future, you need to win the voters who represent the future of our country. And you must speak to the issues of concern to them."
