Former Vice President Joe Biden has been winning every major primary consistently from the beginning of February. Along with the primary voters, he is also winning endorsements from his fellow Democrats, Senators, Representatives, elected officials, and unions. Biden has racked up support from four of the largest and the most politically influential unions in the past two weeks. The unions include - The National Education Association, The United Food and Commercial Workers, The American Federation of Teachers (AFT), and the American Federation of State County and Municipal Employees.
The endorsement from four major unions is a show of force and a severe blow to Bernie Sanders, who is reeling with a slight hope for his nomination. Without openly asking Sanders to drop out, AFT President Randi Weingarten said - “Bernie has a real decision to make. I’m optimistic that Bernie always finds a way to meet the moment, and I’m optimistic that Sanders will always find a way to meet the moment, and I’m optimistic he will meet the moment here. It’s also obvious to me that Biden has earned his place.” Randi Weingarten credited Bernie for his positive tone in campaigning. However, it looks like there is a little realistic hope of beating Biden’s massive lead in the race and win the nomination.
From Bernie’s campaign, it is clear that he is not ready to quit anytime soon. His team also told The New York Times that Sanders is planning to participate in the Democratic Presidential debate in April if it’s held amid the coronavirus outbreak. In the meantime, Sanders is using his campaign resources to raise awareness and funds for the coronavirus pandemic. When asked about Bernie’s decision to stay in the nomination race, Biden told CNN - “That’s his decision. And I’ve been asked the same question about other folks who took part in the primary previously, all of them have dropped now. I think except Bernie, all the previous candidates have endorsed me. That’s totally Bernie’s decision to make, not for me to make.”Dr. Dhillon Randeep
