A top adviser to Bernie Sanders says the senator still has a path to the Democratic presidential nomination but will need to perform well in primary contests next week.

Senior adviser Tad Devine spoke in a phone interview after Hillary Clinton defeated Sanders in New York by a convincing margin. He says Sanders "never counted on winning New York - this is her home state."

Devine says there are "still a pretty good number of delegates left. We have to win most of the states. We have to win enough delegates to make up the difference."

Devine says the Sanders campaign will see how it does next week in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, Rhode Island and Connecticut and then "assess where we are."
