Last night, Senator Bernie Sanders stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to clarify that he is not yet endorsing the presumptive Democratic nominee Clinton.

When asked about the status of his campaign, Sanders said he is still a candidate and will “absolutely” continue his campaign for the presidency of the United States.
