Like many of you reading this, former Vice President Joe Biden was not my first choice in the 2020 Democratic presidential primary. Personally, my first choice was Senator Kamala Harris of California, but Joe Biden became the only viable choice once the field of candidates narrowed and dropped out one by one.
Senator Bernie Sanders dropped out of the race today by suspending his primary campaign. And while Joe Biden was already the mathematically-presumptive nominee, he definitely will be the Democratic nominee for president now.
(CNN) -- Sen. Bernie Sanders ended his presidential campaign on Wednesday, clearing Joe Biden's path to the Democratic nomination and a showdown with President Donald Trump in November.
Sanders made the announcement in a call with his campaign staff, his campaign said.
Sanders' exit caps a stunning reversal of fortune following a strong performance in the first three states that voted in February. The nomination appeared his for the taking until, on the last day of February, Biden surged to a blowout victory in South Carolina that set off a consolidation of moderate voters around the former vice president.
Now, the mission is clear: vote Donald fucking Trump out of office
I have to say I'm excited; excited because I can't wait to see President Obama hit the campaign trail and light into Trump like literally no one else is capable of. Biden himself is relatively good at poking the Orange Menace, but President Obama's presence will take pressure off Biden and allow him to take a mild tone while Obama lets loose.
Unfortunately, because of the ongoing pandemic, we don't know when it will be safe for the campaign to assemble large crowds but suffice to say I don't expect to see that until July or August at the earliest.
I personally still have some hope that I'll get to vote for Kamala Harris in November if Biden chooses her to be his running mate, but it's obviously not a deal breaker if he doesn't. Everyone needs to vote to get rid of Trump once and for all no matter what happens between now and November.
Get Trump out of office and his entire family empire will collapse. I'm sure of it.
