Bernie Sanders announced Wednesday, April 8, that he is withdrawing from the race the White House. “The campaign ends, the struggle continues”, wrote in a press release the democratic senator of Vermont. This last had been under pressure since the end of February, after a series of defeats against his rival Joe Biden, notably in Arizona, Florida and Illinois.
