WASHINGTON -- Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Bernie Sanders predicted he'll do "very well" in Minnesota and other so-called Super Tuesday states, according to the morning transcript of MSNBC's the "Rachel Maddow" show, which aired last night.

Thirteen states, including Minnesota, hold primaries and caucuses on March 1.

MADDOW: "Your campaign put out a mass hiring call earlier this week for campaign coordinators to focus on Massachusetts, Georgia, Colorado, Minnesota, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Vermont, Alabama andn Arkansas. All these super Tuesday states."

SANDERS: "We think we can do very, very well on super Tuesday. I think we're going to very well in Minnesota and Colorado and Massachusetts."
