FEATURING ARUN GUPTA – Despite numerous calls for him to suspend his Presidential campaign, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders in a speech on Wednesday remained firm. Acknowledging his campaign’s failure to garner enough votes in four of the six races on Tuesday, he lamented the idea that his rival Joe Biden had benefitted from the argument of “electability” in spite of evidence to the contrary.
Sanders also issued a warning to the establishment Democratic Party that it is ignoring younger voters thirsty for progressive change at its peril. Sanders also laid out just what he would be challenging Biden on during Sunday’s debate in Phoenix, Arizona.
