Joe Biden says he's debated enough with Bernie Sanders

Democratic presidential frontrunner Joe Biden said Wednesday he's debated enough times with Vermont U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders, signaling his campaign's shift to the general election as the Democratic presidential primary continues on.

“My focus is just dealing with this crisis right now,” the former vice president said. “I haven't thought about any more debates. I think we've had enough debates. I think we should get on with this.”

Biden made the remarks during a virtual news conference from his Delaware home as he follows self-distancing measures during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

His position comes as he's amassed a 300-delegate lead after a clean sweep of three states last week – Illinois, Florida and Arizona – making himself a virtual lock to win the nomination. But because nearly a dozen states have postponed primaries because of the coronavirus, it would take significantly more time for Biden to reach the necessary 1,991 delegates to secure the nomination before the July convention.
