Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders condemned his supporters’ attacks on Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren during an interview on Wednesday.
Sanders told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow that he was “actually disgusted” and “aghast” by the attacks on Warren, demanding she drop out of the race.
“We condemn that,” Sanders said. “We want our supporters to be [talking] about the issues.”
“[We] don't need ugly, personal attacks against Sen. Warren, or anyone else for that measure,” he added.
Warren drops out:
Warren is expected to announce that she is ending her presidential campaign on Thursday, according to The New York Times, CNN, and NBC News.
Warren failed to finish in the top two in any of the 14 states that voted on Super Tuesday, including her home state of Massachusetts.
She also failed to make a significant impact in the earlier four contests.
Warren had been allocated 65 pledged delegates as of Thursday morning, well behind Joe Biden’s 595 and Sanders’ 528.
Delegates continue to be allocated as votes are still being counted in states like California.
Maddow asked Sanders whether he would consider making Warren his running mate.
“It’s too early to talk about that,” he said. “But certainly I have a lot of respect for Senator Warren and would love to sit down and talk to her about what kind of role she can play in our administration.”
