The former vice president has surged in recent weeks after the other moderates in the race dropped out.
Instead of the customary campaign speech after the results of the vote, Sanders on Tuesday night addressed his supporters online in a 20-minute live speech in which he outlined proposals he had for addressing the coronavirus and its economic effect, including tasking the USA military with building hospitals and testing facilities and paying every USA household $2,000 a month until the economic disruption passes.
The Vermont senator's campaign argues the mood of the country could change dramatically as the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic becomes clear, but with such a large delegate deficit he must decide whether it is worth staying in a race which has been reshaped. Biden holds a roughly 300 delegate lead.
Officials in the three states that voted on Tuesday had assured the public it was safe despite fears about the coronavirus, which has dramatically altered American life, forced the campaigns to abandon public events and prompted other states to postpone future primary elections. DeWine is seeking to delay in-person voting until June 2. But the politics of the primary were less pronounced on Tuesday as the logistics of everyday life with the coronavirus outbreak overwhelmed everything, including the election. Democrats have anxious about a possible repeat of 2016, when they believe his long, bitter primary battle with Hillary Clinton played a role in her upset loss to Trump, 73.
"We must guarantee that everyone who needs care can get it for free, ensure that all workers continue to receive paychecks so they can make ends meet, and stop giant corporations and Wall Street from profiting off the outbreak. This is the right thing to do", he said Monday. For your security, we've sent a confirmation email to the address you entered. "I know that we'll answer this moment".
Several other states with upcoming primaries have also delayed their contests until later in the year.
"What we can't do is get into a process that makes it more likely that Donald Trump is re-elected", said Representative Cedric Richmond of Louisiana in a phone call with reporters arranged by the Biden campaign. Sanders: I hear you. The plan also calls for a dramatic investment in the public health system-including an urgent overhaul in terms of testing for the virus-and increased preparedness and support for frontline medical workers, hospitals, clinics, and community health centers. "We must begin thinking on a scale comparable to the threat, and make sure that we are protecting working people, low-income people, and the most vulnerable communities, not just giant corporations and Wall Street".
Despite Biden's dominant lead in the primary, which began with his victory in SC last month followed by a series of wins across the country, Sanders's supporters have remained skeptical of the former vice president's more moderate policies.
