Bernie Sanders is Out of the Presidential Race, But is Staying on the Ballot

This morning, Bernie Sanders dropped out of the race for the Democratic presidential nomination.

As a result, former Vice President Joe Biden has a much clearer path to secure the nomination and face Donald Trump in November to become the next President of the United States.

Reportedly, Bernie announced his decision to drop out of the race to his staff on a phone call. He followed with a livestream to make his official announcement.

While he was unable to secure the nomination, Bernie also said he was planning to stay on the ballot to “exert significant influence over the party platform.”

We’ll see how the day unfolds after the announcement. Check back in for updates!
