Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders has suspended his 2020 presidential campaign amid the speculations that he will continue till the very end. Sanders decided to quit the race after a series of losses he faced in the last month, which changed the momentum of his campaign. The decision was made public during the all-staff conference call this Wednesday morning. Long-term serving Vermont Senator told his supporters that his presidential campaign was just not any ordinary campaign but a movement to feel proud of what they’ve achieved so far. In his live stream, Sanders agreed that “the path towards victory is now virtually impossible,” a statement which has been in rounds since the end of the March.
During his campaign, Sanders fought on progressive issues like economic and social justice, racial justice, and environmental justice. Even during his announcement speech, Bernie argued that his campaign won the ideological struggle. “Vast majority of the US citizens now understand the need to raise the minimum wage to at least $15 per hour; also, they understand we must guarantee health care as a right instead of a privilege. It was not so long ago people considered these ideas radical,” he said. Speaking about why he quit the race abruptly, Sanders said - “If I believed that our campaign had any feasible path to the nomination, I’d have definitely continued the campaign. But it’s not there. I congratulate former Vice President Joe Biden, a very decent man, who I’ll continue to work with to move our progressive ideas forward.”
Although Sanders is out of the race, he said he would stay on the Ballot to collect delegates for the convention, which can be used to bring crucial influence over the party platform. Bernie’s withdrawal also marks the end of one of the most dramatic turnarounds ever witnessed in the presidential primary history of the Democratic party. The Vermont Senator was expected to lead the race after his early wins in New Hampshire and Nevada in mid-February. But soon tables turned around with Biden winning South Carolina and host of states on Super Tuesday. Biden won 10 out of 14 states on Super Tuesday and continued his winning streak even in March by winning three states Illinois, Florida, and Arizona, along with the latest general-election state of Michigan. Bernie Sanders’s announcement to quit the race came a day after Wisconsin primary, whose result is yet to be announced, but it was expected that it could not change any fortunes for him.
