NEW YORK (WCBS 880) — Bernie Sanders is ending his second bid for the White House, clearing the way for former Vice President Joe Biden as the likely Democratic nominee.

The 78-year-old Vermont senator announced his decision to suspended his presidential campaign on a staff conference call Wednesday.

He is addressing his supporters in a live stream thanking them for volunteering, contributing to his campaign and attending his rallies.

While Sanders had a strong finish in early primaries, winning New Hampshire and Nevada, he fell behind Biden in recent contests.

Many of his former opponents, including Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar, have endorsed Biden, but it's not clear if Sanders will do the same.
