Following another round of primary losses to Joe Biden in Arizona, Illinois, and Florida on Tuesday, the presidential campaign of Bernie Sanders indicated there will be no immediate exit from the race but said the Vermont senator will be using the time ahead of the next round of voting to speak with his supporters and consider what should come next.
“The next primary contest is three weeks away,” said Faiz Shakir, Sanders’ campaign manager, in a statement. “Sanders is going to be having conversations with his supporters to assess his campaign.”
“In the immediate term,” Shakir added, Sanders “is focused on the government response to the coronavirus outbreak and ensuring that we take care of working people and the most vulnerable.”
On Tuesday night, just prior to polls closing in the voting states, Sanders released a detailed new plan—called “An Emergency Response to the Coronavirus Pandemic“—which outlines core principles and specific policy proposals to deal with the ongoing outbreak.
“In this moment of crisis, it is imperative that we stand together,” Sanders said.Print
