Sen. Bernie Sanders, battered from his defeat in many Super Tuesday contests, warned President Barack Obama not to endorse Joe Biden, Obama’s former vice president who is now running neck and neck with Sanders for the Democratic nomination.
“I have not the slightest doubt that there is enormous pressure on President Obama to jump into this race and support Joe Biden,” Sanders said during a press conference about the status of his campaign.
Sanders told reporters he backed Obama’s pledge to support the Democrat who wins the nomination and his private assurances that he would not get involved in the primary.
“I agree with him,” Sanders said. “But that’s not easy for him to do. And I very much appreciate his willingness to do that.”
