As Bernie Sanders Remains In Race, Can Biden Be Pushed to the Left?



Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Arun Gupta, an investigative journalist who has written for dozens of publications including the Washington Post, the Guardian, The Nation, Salon, and Raw Story.

He is also author of the forthcoming book, Bacon as a Weapon of Mass Destruction, and a regular news correspondent for Rising Up With Sonali.

Despite numerous calls for him to suspend his Presidential campaign, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders in a speech on Wednesday remained firm.

Acknowledging his campaign’s failure to garner enough votes in four of the six races on Tuesday, he lamented the idea that his rival Joe Biden had benefitted from the argument of “electability” in spite of evidence to the contrary.

Sanders also issued a warning to the establishment Democratic Party that it is ignoring younger voters thirsty for progressive change at its peril.

Sanders also laid out just what he would be challenging Biden on during Sunday’s debate in Phoenix, Arizona.

Rising Up with Sonali is a radio and television show that brings progressive news coverage rooted in gender and racial justice to a wide audience. Rising Up With Sonali was built on the foundation of Sonali Kolhatkar's earlier show, Uprising, which became the longest-running drive-time radio show on KPFK in Los Angeles hosted by a woman. RUS airs on Free Speech TV every weekday.
