Several Democratic superdelegates have pledged to support Hillary Clinton even if she loses the primary, yet that group doesn’t include her husband.

Former President Bill Clinton — an unbound New York delegate — told the New York Daily News Thursday that he would support Bernie Sanders if he manages to win the Democratic nomination.

“It happened last time,” Clinton stated. “Last time I did what my candidate asked, I voted for Barack Obama” at the convention.

Currently, Hillary leads Sanders by 701 delegates, and the majority of her lead comes from the 469 superdelegates who have pledged to support the former secretary of state.

Clinton still needs to earn 671 more delegates to earn the nomination before the convention.
