(The Center Square) – Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders is reportedly announcing that he will suspend his campaign for the Democratic bid for president.
Pictures surfaced Wednesday of emails from the Sanders camp saying he would address supporters about ending his bid.
Sanders’ campaign had been on the ropes since failing to win key states on Super Tuesday. Former Vice President Joe Biden, meanwhile, continued to gain momentum, winning Michigan and Florida.
Biden, responding to questions about Sanders’ future in the race, told the Today Show on Tuesday that the Vermont senator had a significant impact on the race but seemed to rule him out as a potential running mate.
“If I’m the nominee, I can tell you one thing, I would very much want Bernie to be a part of the journey,” Biden said. “Not as a vice presidential nominee, but engaging in all the things that he’s worked so hard to do, many of which I agree with.”
The 78-year-old independent was also dogged by health questions after suffering a heart attack last fall.
