Senator Bernie Sanders said on Wednesday, April 8, that he is suspending his participation in the presidential race. Thus, the candidate of the Democratic Party will be Joe Biden. This is reported by CNN.
Sanders announced about this decision to employees of his election campaign.
In February, according to U.S. journalists, Saunders showed strong results in several states and he was the last preferred candidate in the election until his rival Joe Biden achieved a convincing victory in South Carolina, which rallied moderate voters around the former vice president.
It remains to be seen whether Sanders will support Biden’s candidacy. However, CNN reports that the politician will return to Vermont, which he represents in the Senate.
Journalists emphasize that his last public speech Sanders held in early March. Since then, he has completely moved into virtual communication with his supporters and voters. In particular, the politician talked a lot about the Coronavirus and how his program with health care reform could prevent or mitigate the spread of the infection.
