Senator Bernie Sanders is suspending his campaign to become the Democratic presidential candidate in a Wednesday conference, The New York Times reports.
The suspension of his candidacy will now make former Vice President Joe Biden in position to be the nominee to challenge President Donald Trump in the November 2020 election.
The report cites losses in South Carolina, Michigan, and Florida, along with the threat of coronavirus and the impact, all as nearly impassive hurdles for Sanders to see the nomination. The latter reason due to both candidates being able to get out and see the people. In that time, calls were made to unite the party and to support Biden for the spot.
During his campaign, Mr. Sanders pushed “Medicare for all,” free college, cancellation of student loans and more, often carrying the stigma of being too far left.
