Senator Bernie Sanders will do a status check of his campaign after Tuesday's primary in five Northeastern states, but the Vermont senator remains determined to remain in the Democratic race until the party's convention in July, a top strategist said.

"If we are sitting here and there's no sort of mathematical way to do it, we will be upfront about that," the senior strategist, Tad Devine, told The New York Times. "If we have a really good day, we are going to continue to talk about winning most of the pledged delegates because we will be on a path toward it.

"If we don’t get enough today to make it clear that we can do it by the end, it’s going to be hard to talk about it," Devine said. "That’s not going to be a credible path.

"Instead, we will talk about what we intend to do between now and the end and how we can get there."

The states holding primaries on Tuesday are Connecticut, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island — where polls are showing that Hillary Clinton is leading Sanders — and in Delaware.

The Sanders campaign will be discussing a range of issues, Devine told the Times — including how the Vermont senator could still win the nomination and how he should focus his efforts.

"We may decide we have to pick up some more delegates in some of these caucus states," he said. "Maybe we have to get some more people on the ground between now and the state conventions some place, because we are not going to win as many as we thought we were going to win in primaries.

"But we have got to make up the difference elsewhere — that’s the reassessment," Devine said.

He cautioned, however, that Sanders would remain in the race and that the senator had decided to compete in all of the remaining contests — including in the District of Columbia and California, which vote in June.

"Reassess does not mean that he’s not going to be part of this race," Devine told the Times.

"Reassess does not mean that his message, that we think is the most powerful message, is going to change."
