Axios is reporting that Bernie Sanders' Campaign has suspended its Facebook ads. This is one of the first signs that the campaign ending is imminent.

Despite this suspension, the campaign has pushed back on the reports it is over. Many believe that it is only a matter of time.

According to Axios:

Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign currently has no active Facebook ads, the morning after another disappointing finish in a series of primary contests.

Why it matters: A pause in digital advertising spend on Facebook has been a good indicator that candidates are dropping out of the 2020 race before. Pete Buttigieg and Michael Bloomberg made their Facebook ads inactive hours before they suspended their campaigns.

The state of play: Sanders and his wife Jane are traveling back to Vermont today to “assess the path forward for our campaign," per a note from his campaign manager Faiz Shakir.


Joe Biden has now accumulated what clearly looks like an insurmountable delegate lead over Sanders, leaving him little room and time to make up for that deficit.

Once the campaign is officially over it will then be interesting to see if Bernie's supporters and staff rally behind Biden or choose to sit the election out.
