The 78-year-old held a staff conference call on Wednesday when he announced that he is suspending his campaign for president.

US Senator Bernie Sanders has puled out of his presidential campaign, clearing the way for Joe Biden to become the Democratic nominee to challenge Republican incumbent Donald Trump in November.

The 78-year-old held a staff conference call on Wednesday when he announced that he is suspending his campaign for president.

Eyewitness News correspondent Nadia Neophytou says it came as somewhat of a surprise.

He said that given what is happening with the coronavirus, he is not able to mount this campaign which he believes is actually going to be successful.
