Clinton allies urge Bernie Sanders to ease off attacks for the good of the party | The Tylt
Should the Sanders campaign tone down their attacks on Clinton for the good of the party, or should they try to take Clinton down any way they can?
The Clinton campaign has been very careful not to tell Bernie Sanders to drop out — but they are asking him to tone it down. After Sanders's decisive defeat in New York on Tuesday, Sanders's chances of the nomination are slim. As a result, some Clinton supporters are pleading with the Sanders campaign to ease off on his critiques of Clinton, so as not to create ammunition for Republicans in the general election.
Several Democratic governors urged the Sanders campaign to shift their fire towards Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, and avoid attacking Secretary Clinton in ways that could "damage the party" and deny Democrats the White House.
The Sanders campaign has reacted to these pleas "with varying degrees of incredulity," vowing to keep the spotlight on Clinton's vulnerabilities, like her connections to Wall Street.
Should Bernie battle on or ease off?
