Biden: ‘Can’t Wait’ to Work with Bernie on ‘Progressive Future’

April 9, 2020

In the wake of Bernie Sanders‘ exit from the presidential campaign, presumptive nominee Joe Biden proclaimed Wednesday that he is looking forward to working with Sanders “on building a more progressive future.”

“I admired his passion. I liked his convictions,” the gaffe-prone Biden said of his former rival. “I thought people who failed to take him seriously would prove to be sorely mistaken. And, as it turns out, I was right.

“Bernie suspended his campaign today, but while you can suspend a campaign, you can’t suspend a movement. Bernie and his supporters have taken issues which had been given little attention and brought them to the center of the conversation. Bernie gets a lot of credit for his passionate advocacy for the issues he cares about. But he doesn’t get enough credit for being a voice that forces us all to take a hard look in the mirror and ask if we’ve done enough,” he continued.

“Jill and I can’t wait to work with him and Jane on building a more progressive future,” Biden added.
