Presidential race: Bernie still running, but focused on COVID-19

by Mike Andrew - SGN Staff Writer

After three primary election losses to Joe Biden on March 17, Bernie Sanders says he's still in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination but will focus on dealing with the COVID-19 crisis.

Initial reports that Sanders - the favorite among LGBTQ voters according to national polls - would suspend his campaign turned out to be incorrect. Sanders has, however, suspended Facebook advertising and is apparently no longer soliciting funds from supporters.

Nevertheless, his campaign staff insists he's still in the race.

"The next primary contest is at least three weeks away. Sen. Sanders is going to be having conversations with supporters to assess his campaign," Faiz Shakir, Sanders' campaign manager, said in a statement on March 18.

"In the immediate term, however, he is focused on the government response to the coronavirus outbreak and ensuring that we take care of working people and the most vulnerable."

Sanders himself confirmed in a March 18 press conference that he was still a candidate for the nomination but added that if Biden won future primaries, he would be forced to make a decision about dropping out.

However, when asked by NBC reporter Manu Raju if he had a timeline for his decision, Sanders replied with some irritation.

"Well right now, right now I'm trying to do my best to make sure that we don't have an economic meltdown and that people don't die. Is that enough for you to keep me busy for today?" he said.

When pressed, Sanders answered with even stronger language. "I'm dealing with a fucking global crisis. You know what we're dealing with."

Biden currently has 1,147 delegates while Sanders has 861. A candidate needs 1,991 pledged delegates to win the Democratic presidential nomination on the first ballot.
