Sanders made it very clear that he not only needs to win all future primaries, but that he needs to win big.

He showed his easy going personality off walking down College Avenue as he greeted supporters and it was a visit few expected, but that many had hoped for.

Sanders said he expects to win the West Virginia primary and hopes to do the same in California, even if Hillary Clinton is dominating the delegates count, Sanders told reporters that he's the only one that can beat Republican contender Trump. "First day we were in this campaign, nobody thought that we would be fighting here, and stand a good chance to win in California on June 7, so an uphill fight is not something that gets me nervous, that's what I've been doing from day one.
