Don't Agree With Sanders on 'Virtually Anything'

The high-profile progressive freshman from NY, who has been campaigning for Sanders in Iowa leading up to Monday's caucuses, said that she hopes the party will unite behind the eventual nominee, even if it is not Sanders. Senator Bernie Sanders is leading in most New Hampshire polls a week ahead of the state's primary.

Bloomberg noted Sanders is "so far to the left it's not practical". While Sanders has been surging in popularity across parts of the country, the Democratic Party establishment is openly expressing concern that the self-described democratic socialist could win the nomination.

"I don't agree with him on virtually anything", Bloomberg told Axios.

"He is the candidate for everyone and he is the candidate that can best beat Trump, I think". "And I would hope that everybody would do so if Bernie is the nominee as well". "We are off to New Hampshire and we are going to work as hard as we can to win in New Hampshire", Sanders said.

Monday marks the country's first caucuses in Iowa, where Sanders now leads his 2020 rivals. A spokesman said that Bloomberg's decision to bypass the first four states, allows him to have the Super Tuesday states effectively to himself for the next month.
