Senator Bernie Sanders’ campaign manager (I., Vt.) And other top advisors are asking him to consider abolishing the democratic presidential primaries Washington Post reported on Saturday.
Campaign managers Faiz Shakir and Sander’s allies Pramila Jayapal (D., Wash.) Have reportedly supported the exit from the race. Political strategist Jeff Weaver, a long-time ally of Sanders, has also spoken out in favor of quitting. An exit would now leave the Vermont senator on friendlier terms with rival Joe Biden and would have more influence on the negotiations on the Democratic political platform.
Sanders said he had a “close look” at the future of the campaign in an MSNBC interview on Friday. The senator is reportedly waiting to make a decision until after the area code in Wisconsin on Tuesday that Sanders won in 2016 but now has an average lead of 18 points, according to Biden RealClearPolitics.
While Sanders won the referendum in the first three Democratic primary, Biden went to victory in South Carolina and again in most Super Tuesday countries, supported by moderate and African-American voters. So far, Sanders has refused to exit from Biden’s 1,217-914 despite Biden’s leadership, and several states have postponed their primaries and voted in the mail during the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic.
