LOS ANGELES (AP) — Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders says comedian Larry David shouldn’t worry about his role on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live.”

The Vermont senator joked in an interview with The Associated Press that he wants David to continue his job impersonating him on the late night show, which had its season finale last weekend.

Speaking to the camera, Sanders says to David: “Larry, I am deeply concerned about unemployment in America. I want you to keep your job on ‘Saturday Night Live.’ “

Sanders says he will “fight to win this nomination” and David “can have a job, guaranteed, good pay, four years. Stay with me, Larry.”

Sanders made a cameo appearance on the show in February before the New Hampshire primary. The senator trails rival Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primaries.
