Sanders Ready to Suspend?

While there isn’t really much doubt at this point that Hillary Clinton will indeed be the Democratic nominee for president, Bernie Sanders still hasn’t officially suspended his campaign.

There have been countless calls for him to drop out over the last several months, but the Vermont senator seemed set on staying in the race until the July convention.

Now that today’s DC primary marked the last day of primary voting, things could change though. Sanders will meet with Clinton later today and has sent out this message to his supporters earlier on Tuesday.

“When we started this campaign, I told you that I was running not to oppose any man or woman, but to propose new and far-reaching policies to deal with the crises of our time. And for the past fourteen months, through the entire primary process, we’ve sent the establishment a message they can’t ignore: we won’t settle for the status quo.

After today, the voting is done, but our political revolution continues.

I want to talk to you directly on Thursday night about what’s next for our campaign in a live, online video address at 8:30 p.m. EDT / 5:30 p.m. PDT. I hope that you will join.”

Sounds like we can expect a concussion speech on Thursday to me.

But then his campaign told reporters that Sanders is all in until the convention after this email was sent – so I guess we will have to wait and see what the week brings.
