Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) campaign manager, Jeff Weaver, said on Wednesday that the senator will remain a Democrat after the 2016 presidential election.

Weaver was asked on Bloomberg News’ “With All Due Respect” whether Sanders would still be a Democrat even if he lost the presidential nomination.

“Well, he is a Democrat. He’s said he’s a Democrat, and he’s gonna be supporting the Democratic nominee, whoever that is,” Weaver responded.

And when asked of Sanders was now a “Democrat for life,” Weaver said, “Yes, he is.”
