U.S. Sen. Chuck Schumer told reporters in western New York on Monday he was confident Hillary Clinton would win next month’s presidential primary against Bernie Sanders.

The Sanders campaign announced this week it would make a play for the April 19 nominating contest, which is often not considered a high drama vote, given how late it is held in the primary season.

Schumer, a staunch Clinton supporter, said the winner of the primary will be the candidate who resonates best with middle class voters.

“The candidate, this election more than ever the candidate who focuses best and convinces middle class folks they can get incomes moving again, make it easier to stay in the middle class, make it easier to get to the middle class,” Schumer said. “I think it will be Hillary, but that’s why we have elections.”

Clinton has some built in advantages of having lived in and represented New York in the U.S. Senate. But Sanders is drawing support from New York’s liberal base of Democratic voters as well as the labor-aligned Working Families Party.

Asked about Sanders’s push in New York, Schumer said: “I think Hillary will win the New York primary. She did a good job when she was here.”
