NATURAL ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) U.S. Democratic Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders reassured supporters in Seattle, Washington on Friday that he had a realistic chance of beating Republican rival Donald Trump and winning the White House, on the eve of that state's Democratic caucus. Sanders made the remarks at a podium placed at the home plate of the Seattle Mariners' Safeco Field. "We have now won 11 states. And if there are large turnouts tomorrow in Washington, Hawaii and Alaska, we have a shot to win three more. And I believe that if we win here in Washington, we're going to win in California, we are going to win in Oregon, and we've got a real path toward victory to the White House," Sanders said. He triggered wild cheers from the tens of thousands of supporters when he said polls suggested he was the man to beat the billionaire reality TV personality-turned-Presidential hopeful Trump. Sanders implored supporters to caucus, which start at 10 a.m. Saturday morning. The U.S. senator from Vermont is also looking for wins in Alaska and Hawaii, which also hold nominating contests on Saturday.
