Biden Routs Bernie in Florida’s Democrat Primary
March 18, 2020
White House contender Joe Biden is projected to defeat his rival, “Democratic Socialist” Bernie Sanders and take 219 delegates in the Democrat presidential primary in Florida on Tuesday.
According to Breitbart News
, when the race was called with nearly 70% of precincts reporting, the gaffe-prone Party establishment favorite was beating the more radical Sanders by nearly 40 percentage points—60% to 22%.Sanders crippled his standing among Florida Democrats with a number of self-inflicted wounds — most notably, when he outraged many in the state’s Cuban community by praising late dictator Fidel Castro
for purportedly raising the literacy rate on the island.
“I find Senator Bernie Sanders’ comments on Castro’s Cuba absolutely unacceptable,” Democrat Rep. Debbie Mucarsel-Powell said in response to Sanders’ ludicrous defense of the Communist tyrant. “The Castro regime murdered and jailed dissidents, and caused unspeakable harm to too many South Florida families.”
