The general election for president is underway between President Donald Trump and presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden. The former vice president's last major rival, Bernie Sanders, announced Wednesday he was ending his campaign. Sanders' decision concludes a fiery and public intraparty battle that has been tearing at the fabric of the Democratic Party. Sanders says he will continue to work toward the defeat of the Republican president. But Sanders suggested in an interview on CBS' “Late Show” he hopes to see Biden move in a more progressive direction. Neither Trump nor Biden has formally received his party's nomination, but they will be the standard-bearers barring an unforeseen event.
