Sen. Bernie Sanders ended his presidential campaign on Wednesday, leaving Joe Biden with the Democratic nomination and will take on President Donald Trump in November.
Sanders made the announcement in a call with his campaign staff, his campaign said.
Sanders’ had a strong performance in the first three states that voted in February. The nomination was going in his favor until the last day of February. Biden started to blow right past him with a big win in South Carolina. The contest ends now as the country continues to deal with the coronavirus pandemic, which stopped in-person campaigning for both Sanders and Biden and many states had to delay their primary elections.
