Networks Skip Sanders Speech Focused On Policy Rather Than Primary Losses

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) took the stage Tuesday night following losses in the Ohio, Florida and North Carolina Democratic primaries, where he delivered a nearly hour-long speech focused on his campaign policies that wasn’t carried even in part by any of the major cable networks.

In a speech to cheering supporters, Sanders chose not to reference his poor performance in the primaries and instead pivoted to the upcoming contest in Arizona.

While he took a few jabs at his Democratic presidential rival, Hillary Clinton, Sanders mainly attacked Trump and the “cowardly” GOP senators who he said are restricting voters’ rights.

“If you are afraid of free and fair elections, get out of politics,” Sanders said. “Get another job.”
