At an earlier debate in Las Vegas, the 2020 candidates were asked whether the candidate with the most delegates should be the nominee, even if that person lacked a delegate majority. Almost every candidate suggested that the convention process should work its way out. Sanders, who helped force the changes to the nomination process this year and expects to take a significant delegate lead in the coming weeks, was the only exception. “The person who has the most votes should become the nominee,” he said. 1:54 Bernie Sanders warns Russia to stay out of 2020 campaign Bernie Sanders warns Russia to stay out of 2020 campaign House Democrats, particularly the freshmen, are being told to chart their own course as they did running in 2018.
