US elections: Bernie Sanders suspends his campaign for the presidential race
US Election News Update: -‘The road to victory is already impossible,’ said Sanders, 78.
The Vermont senator was facing Joe Biden to be chosen as the candidate who would face Donald Trump in the elections that are scheduled in November.
Sanders announced his decision to his team in a conference call minutes before making his decision public in a video broadcast online.
Sanders, who defines himself as a ‘socialist,’ got off to a good start for the Democratic nomination by winning the primaries held in two of the first four states: New Hampshire and Nevada.
In Nevada, his victory revealed his ability to attract the Latino vote, a group that in this year's presidential elections constitutes for the first time the largest ethnic and racial minority in the United States.
However, after the voting on ‘Super Tuesday’, which occurred on March 5, he began to quickly give way to Biden's candidacy.

‘Our movement won the ideological fight’

In a speech broadcast online from his home in Burlington, Vermont, he confirmed the decision to suspend his campaign.
He stressed that his application has about 300 fewer delegates than Biden, which is almost impossible to trace.
‘If I believed we had a possible path to candidacy, I would not hesitate to move forward,’ he said. ‘We are not making this decision lightly.’

Bernie Sanders' withdrawal opens the way for Joe Biden.

Sanders highlighted how his campaign had served to promote on the public agenda a series of proposals that, according to him, were initially classified as extreme and that are already part of current political discourse.
We have transformed American consciousness about what kind of nation we can become and we have led this country to take a great step forward in the never-ending fight for economic justice, social justice, racial justice, and environmental justice,’ He said.
‘Our movement won the ideological fight,’ he added.
The senator also referred to the support that his nomination had received from the youngest and highlighted how those under 30 years of age had voted for him in a massive way. ‘The future of our country lies with our ideas,’ he said.
Sanders ratified his desire for Democrats to defeat President Donald Trump during the November presidential election and announced that he would work with Biden to get it.
The US president, for his part, referred to the announcement by Sanders, whose nomination had been affected - from his point of view - by the competence of Senator Elizabeth Warren.
‘If it hadn't been for her, Bernie would have won almost every state during super Tuesday! These ended just as the Democrats and the Democratic National Committee wanted, just as with the corrupt Hillary fiasco. Bernie's people should come to the Republican Party,’ Trump said in a tweet.
The president made reference to the allegations about the hidden efforts made by members of the Democratic National Committee during the 2016 primary campaign to favor the nomination of Hillary Clinton.
Sanders' decision to suspend his campaign leaves the way open for Biden to become the Democratic presidential candidate and allows him to focus now on his goal of reaching the White House.
