Kid Cudi, El-P, and others expressed their gratitude.
On Wednesday afternoon, Vermont senator Bernie Sanders announced he’d suspend his presidential campaign. After winning Nevada, New Hampshire, and tying for first place in Iowa, Sanders decided to call his campaign off.
“Today I am suspending my campaign,” he tweeted. “But while the campaign ends, the struggle for justice continues on.” Sanders also shared a video thanking supporters for a groundbreaking grassroots campaign.
In recent weeks, Sanders had redirected donations to his campaign to coronavirus relief. Additionally, he called for the Democratic National Convention to call off upcoming primaries in the midst of the pandemic. In just two days in late March, Sanders announced his campaign had raised over $2 million. Proceeds went to organizations like No Kid Hungry, One Fair Wage Emergency Fund, Meals on Wheels, and the National Domestic Workers Alliance.
