Sen. Bernie Sanders’s (I-Vt.) presidential campaign manager on Wednesday said that Sanders would take time in the coming weeks to assess his campaign after a slew of primary wins for former Vice President Joe Biden.

“The next primary contest is three weeks away,” Sanders’s campaign manager, Faiz Shakir, said in a statement. “Sen. Sanders is going to be having conversations with his supporters to assess his campaign.” 

“In the immediate term, however, he is focused on the government response to the coronavirus outbreak and ensuring that we take care of working people and the most vulnerable.” 

The statement comes hours after Biden won sweeping victories in the Arizona, Florida and Illinois Democratic primaries on Tuesday. Biden won Florida by nearly 40 points and took Illinois by more than 20 points. 

Biden won Arizona with roughly 43 percent of the vote, while Sanders garnered more than 31 percent of the vote.
