Bernie said he’s going to keep his delegates and keep collecting delegates.
Can someone explain what good will come of that?
“It's outrageous that the Republican legislative leaders and the conservative majority on the Supreme Court in Wisconsin are willing to risk the health and safety of many thousands of Wisconsin voters tomorrow for their own political gain,” said Sen. Bernie Sanders in a statement.
“Let's be clear: holding this election amid the coronavirus outbreak is dangerous, disregards the guidance of public health experts, and may very well prove deadly.”
Presidential candidate Joe Biden did not call on the state to delay the election; a request for comment from the Biden campaign wasn’t returned.
Joe Biden has shifted his stance on whether Wisconsin should have plowed ahead with its primary.
“My gut is we shouldn’t have had the in-person election in the first place," the presumptive 2020 Democratic presidential nominee told CNN late Tuesday. "It should have been all mail-in ballots."
Biden, the former two-term vice president and 36-year Delaware senator, was criticized before Democrats in Wisconsin went to the polls Tuesday for equivocating on whether the primary should be held, as well as the state's other spring general elections, including for a state Supreme Court seat.
Biden, 77, repeatedly said the decision should be left to local lawmakers and public health officials. In contrast, Bernie Sanders, Biden's last remaining rival to become his party's standard-bearer, was vocal in his opinion that the contests should be delayed, early voting extended, and greater provisions made for residents to vote-by-mail.
Graham backs Trump, vows no money for WHO in next funding bill
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Tuesday pledged to cut funding for the World Health Organization (WHO) in Congress's next appropriations bill unless it makes changes to its leadership.
Graham said during an appearance on Fox News that he would use his position as chairman of the Senate Appropriations subcommittee overseeing foreign operations to ensure the WHO did not get funding from the U.S.
"I’m not going to support funding the WHO under its current leadership," Graham said. "They’ve been deceptive, they’ve been slow, and they’ve been Chinese apologists. I don’t think they’re a good investment under the current leadership for the United States, and until they change their behavior and get new leadership, I think it’s in America’s best interest to withhold funding because they have failed miserably when it comes to the coronavirus.
Bernie isn't disappointing me because I don't care about him, that is the difference regarding my comments on Biden. Holding someone you're going to support to a higher standard isn't slamming them.
Bernie is STILL taking online contributions for his failed campaign on his website.
