Four states have primaries scheduled for Tuesday: Arizona, Florida, Illinois and Ohio. But as the coronavirus outbreak spreads, officials with the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have encouraged the cancellation of any gathering that will draw more than 50 people.
Sen. Bernie Sanders was just asked if he thinks the Tuesday primaries should go on as planned.
"That is a very good question," Sanders said. "Look, you know, elections, dates are very, very important. We don't want to be getting in the habit of messing around with them."
"I would hope that governors listen to the public health experts, and what they are saying is — you just indicated — we don't want gatherings of more than 50 people. I'm thinking about some of the elderly people sitting behind the desks, registering people, doing all that stuff. Does that make a lot of sense? I'm not sure that it does."
