Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, who saw his once-strong lead in the United States Democratic primary evaporate as the party’s establishment line up behind rival Joe Biden, ended his presidential bid on Wednesday, an acknowledgement that the former vice president is too far ahead for him to have any reasonable hope of catching up.
The Vermont senator’s announcement makes Biden the presumptive Democratic nominee to challenge President Donald Trump in November.
Sanders said he would address his supporters from his home in Burlington, Vermont via a live stream at 11:45am Eastern time.
