Good afternoon. Here are the latest news and updates that our team at Future Majority is tracking.
Senator Bernie Sanders has exited the Democratic presidential primary.
The Vermont Senator suspended his campaign Wednesday, leaving former Vice President Joe Biden the only remaining Democratic candidate and the presumptive nominee.
The two candidates have reportedly been in discussion as to how Biden will embrace some of Sanders’ policy platform. Moreover, Senator Sanders declared he would remain on the ballot in the remaining states to hold primaries, a move to rack up more delegates and have a greater say over the party platform come the convention in August.
As it stands now, Biden has secured 1,217 delegates to Sanders’ 914.
