Days after facing down a series of losses to Hillary Clinton in five Democratic primaries, Bernie Sanders doubled down.

From the Supreme Court nominee to his shifting stance on the role of superdelegates in helping him pull closer to his opponent, Sanders held his ground, saying on Thursday evening that he would ask President Barack Obama to withdraw his Supreme Court nomination if he becomes president, but that he fully supports his nomination of Judge Merrick Garland.

"I'm 100 percent prepared to support Judge Garland. I think he's clearly very knowledgeable and can serve ably on the Supreme Court," he said. "[But] I think there are some more progressive judges out there," Sanders said on MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show."
