On Wednesday, Former Vice President Joe Biden said that it's time to wrap up the primary debates, and suggested that he is not interested in a final debate against his rival, Senator Bernie Sanders.
“My focus is just dealing with this crisis right now,” Biden during a virtual press conference. “I haven’t thought about any more debates. I think we’ve had enough debates. I think we should get on with this."
It sounds to me like he doesn't want to have the final debate because he wants to wrap this up without allowing Bernie another chance to reach people and win over votes.
I don't like either of them, but I know that's not fair.
The Hill reports:
The remarks come a day after the Sanders campaign reiterated its intention to participate in the 12th debate of the primary cycle. Biden and Sanders are the only remaining candidates in the race.
“If there is a debate in April, he plans to be there,” Sanders spokesman Mike Casca said.
The Democratic National Committee (DNC) originally scheduled 12 debates and 11 have taken place so far. The DNC has not responded to a request for comment about the whether the final debate is still in the works.
The coronavirus has taken Biden and Sanders off the campaign trail and several states have postponed their primary elections.
Biden has opened up what many view as an insurmountable lead in delegates and some of Biden’s allies are eager for Sanders to concede defeat and drop out of the race.
Sanders has said he’s “assessing” his way forward. The Vermont senator has drawn back his attacks against Biden and has effectively stopped fundraising.
What do you think? Should the debates be done? Or should they have their final debate, even if it's via video?
NEW: “My focus is just dealing with this crisis right now. I haven’t thought about any more debates,. I think we’ve had enough debates. I think we should get on with this,” Joe Biden says when asked if there should be more Democratic debates. https://t.co/cZA4ORLjNb pic.twitter.com/4fryw6GhTf
