MSNBC’s Kasie Hunt hints Bernie ready to drop out: Insiders ‘more solemn than you would expect’
MSNBC political correspondent Kasie Hunt suggested on Monday that people close to Bernie Sanders — and even the candidate himself — were bracing for his campaign to be suspended after Tuesday’s Democratic primary.
Reporting from Los Angeles, Hunt revealed that campaign insiders were “more solemn than you would expect” ahead of the final primary contests in six states when Hillary Clinton could earn enough delegates to become the Democratic nominee.
“She is expected to become the presumptive Democratic nominee on Tuesday with all of those states that are voting,” Hunt explained. “The question of course [is] what is Bernie Sanders going to do?”
“He had some aggressive comments over the weekend suggesting he’s going to stay in this,” she observed. “But I will say, I’m picking up from some sources — I covered the Sanders campaign for quite some time — that the mood in the campaign is a little bit more solemn than you might expect, even for the candidate himself and his family.”
Hunt concluded: “So, potentially something going on there to keep an eye on.”
