It was a whirlwind weekend for the Democratic presidential candidates. Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders crisscrossed the Golden State ahead of Tuesday's primary. 

The Puerto Rico primary over the weekend put Clinton just 26 delegates away from the 2,383 delegate threshold. Sanders is about 800 short.

Despite the long odds, Sanders, in a news conference Saturday, sent a clear message to Democrats: even if Clinton gets the delegates she needs, he's not dropping out. Instead, Sanders insists that the Democratic convention in July will be a contested convention. 

For more on what this means, Take Two spoke to Dan Schnur. He's the director of the Jesse M. Unruh Institute of Politics at USC.
