It probably feels like Groundhog Day all over again for Bernie Sanders. For the second election cycle in a row, Sanders has quit the race for the Democrat nomination for President. This leaves “Sleepy” Joe Biden as the Dem’s presumptive nominee for the 2020 Presidential election.
Sanders did the same in the 2016 race against Hillary Clinton. The Donkey Party’s still haven’t embraced his brand socialism (yet). While Sanders didn’t change his redistributive core beliefs this time, but he did change his tune on guns.
FoxNews has the story of Sanders’ quitting. Again.
Bernie Sanders suspended his Democratic presidential campaign on Wednesday, effectively ensuring former Vice President Joe Biden will be the party’s nominee even as the liberal Vermont senator vowed to continue to lead his “movement” into the future.
The senator, at one point the front-runner for the nomination, initially announced the decision during an all-staff conference call Wednesday morning, and followed up with an address livestreamed to supporters shortly before noon.
Citing Biden’s lead of more than 300 convention delegates, Sanders declared: “The path toward victory is virtually impossible.”
Yes, another hard-left candidate thought that the gun control message would help carry them into office. And it did not happen. Americans don’t like the smell of weakness, failure, or civilian disarmament.
Any politician can repackage lies and untruths to promote gun control schemes as Bernie did this year. But as Breadline Bernie’s failure again shows, supporting gun control isn’t even enough to convince a majority of Democrats to support your campaign, much less a majority of Americans.
