Sanders to Cut Hundreds of Staff Members
We s t L a f a y a t t e , I n d : Battered by four defeats in Tuesday night’s primaries, Bernie Sanders is planning to lay off hundreds of campaign staffers across the country and focus much of his remaining effort on winning the June 7 California primary. The Vermont senator revealed the changes a day after Hillary Clinton’s victories widened her delegate lead and left her all but cer- tain to win the Democratic presidential nomination.
De s pi t e t he c h a n g e s , Sanders said he would remainin the racethroughthe party’s summer convention and stressed that he hoped to bring staff members back on board if his political fortunesimproved.Butpolitical experts say the layoffs signal that Sanders is beginning to accept that he will not be the Democratic nominee and is now focused on pulling the party toward a more progressive agenda. “We want to win as many delegates as we can, so we do not need workers now in states around the country,” Sanders said in an interview.
