With just one day to go before the critical Iowa Caucuses, Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders suggested that rival Hillary Clinton would hurt Democrats’ chances of retaking the House of Representatives in down-ballot races in an appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”
“I think our campaign is the campaign that is generating excitement and energy that will result in a high voter turnout. Republicans win when voter turnout is low. Democrats win when voter turnout is high,” Sander’s told NBC News’ Chuck Todd.
Sanders, who trails Clinton in Iowa by just three points in the Des Moines Register poll released Saturday night, downplayed the importance of winning the state’s caucuses Monday.
“I think in terms of the division of delegates, whether you win by two points or you lose by two points, it’s not going to matter a whole lot,” he said.
