Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) said Tuesday that he didn’t think Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) can win the Democratic presidential nomination, the Associated Press reported.

During his weekly press conference, Reid said Sanders was a good person who “has run a campaign that I think we’ve all recognized has been unique and powerful, and I think Bernie should do what he wants to do,” according to the AP.

When reporters asked him to definitively say whether he thought Sanders could win the nomination, he responded, “No, I do not.”

Reid endorsed Sanders’ rival, Hillary Clinton, following his state’s caucuses.
