Sanders, Biden cancel Ohio rallies over coronavirus concerns
By Associated Press writers Alexandra Jaffe and Will Weissert
WASHINGTON (AP)- Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden have canceled their primary-night rallies in Cleveland amid concerns over the spread of the new coronavirus.
Sanders’ campaign also announced Tuesday that all the Vermont senator’s future events “will be evaluated on a case by case basis.”
A Biden spokesman initially indicated that the former vice president’s own Cleveland rally would take place as scheduled in Cleveland, but his campaign released a statement moments later saying that it, too, was canceling.
Both events had been timed as results from six states voting Tuesday in the Democratic presidential primary would begin rolling in.
