During debate: Only Bernie Sanders against the option of a contested convention

During the Democratic debate in Las Vegas, the candidates for the Democratic presidential nomination were asked if the "person with the most delegates at the end of the primary season" should be the nominee for the Democratic party, even if the candidate is short of a majority of delegates.

This is important in particular because if no candidate has a majority on the first ballot, 500 superdelegates that aren't appointed through primaries can vote in the second one.
