Bill: End race? 'Bunch of bull'

From NBC/NJ's Carrie Dann
KANNAPOLIS, N.C. -- Just in case you were wondering what Hillary Clinton's No. 1 fan thinks of recent calls for her to drop out of the race for the Democratic nomination, Bill Clinton has three words for you: "Bunch of Bull."

"All these people tell you, 'Aw, we oughta shut this thing down now; the Democrats are so divided,'" Clinton said at a campaign event here. "That's a bunch of bull."

The former president went on to note that he did not earn enough delegates to clinch the 1992 nomination until June of that year, around the same time that the final primary votes will be cast this year.

He also argued, as he often does, against the "disenfranchisement" of voters in Michigan and Florida. "She wants you to have your say," he added.

Notably, Clinton described the remaining primaries as contests for the popular vote (not for delegates.) "Now we're going to have to go all the way through to the end to see who has the most popular votes," he said. "And that's good."
