Bernie Sanders wouldn't wear a tuxedo to his inaugural ball

If Bernie Sanders wins the presidency, don't expect him to go all out for the celebration. In an interview with Good Morning America on Monday, he told Robin Roberts not even the inaugural ball would be a tuxedo-worthy occasion for a man who campaigns on fixing wealth inequality.

"I've probably got myself in a lot of trouble right now and my wife disagrees with me, no doubt, but a tux is kind of a symbol of class privilege," the Vermont senator said. "That says I'm really important and I'm fancy, and you're something else."

Sanders also vowed that win or lose in Iowa on Monday, he plans to stay in the race all the way through to the Democratic National Convention.
