Senator Bernie Sanders campaign announced he will be "accessing" the future of his campaign after another demoralizing night of primaries that almost certainly made his path to the nomination all but impossible.
Vice President Biden romped Sanders in Arizona, Illinois, and Florida, handily beating the Senator in each contest. In Florida alone, Biden beat Sanders by a whopping 600,000 votes. The Senator didn't fare any better in the other two states that voted. Ohio's primary was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
I'm not a betting man, but I can't imagine that Sanders will continue his candidacy much longer. The math is not on his side and he risks alienating millions of voters who want to see Democrats unite to take on President Trump in the general election. The writing couldn't be more clearly written on the wall than it is right now.
How Senator Sanders decides to handle these next days and weeks will determine how united the Democrats are for the general election. I honestly believe he will do the gracious thing and full his wholehearted support behind Biden. This primary hasn't had the vitriol and outright hostility that dominated the 2016 race and I think even die hard Bernie supporters recognize (even if they won't say it out loud) that this election is different.
The Sanders campaign didn't give any further information about the Senator's thinking, but I have a feeling we will be hearing something from him within the week.
