In the U.S., Senator Bernie Sanders has ended his campaign for the presidency of the Democratic Party in the 2020 election. It is reported by NRP.org.
Sanders’ exit from the race will allow former US Vice President Joe Biden to become a Democratic candidate and compete with Republican Donald Trump.
On the eve of Biden defeated Sanders in the primaries in Illinois, Arizona and Florida.
Biden was far ahead of Sanders after a series of primaries in several states. Against the backdrop of the coronavirus epidemic, candidates for the nomination of the President of the United States did not conduct a classic campaign. Rallies and meetings with voters were canceled.
To nominate a candidate from the Democrats, it is necessary to dial a 1991 vote out of 3979 votes of the delegates to the party congress. It is scheduled for mid-July.
Acting President Donald Trump, following the results of yesterday’s Republican Party primaries in Illinois and Florida, received 1,301 electoral votes. Trump needs 1276 votes out of 2441 to nominate a Republican candidate at a party congress in August.
The US presidential election will be held on November 3, 2020.
