Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders has officially dropped out of the 2020 presidential race, leaving former Vice President Joe Biden as the likely nominee for the Democratic Party.

Sanders will likely address supporters Wednesday to discuss his decision.

Sanders’ success in 2020 comes after a strong bid in 2016. But he couldn’t rally enough supporters around his progressive ideas to earn necessary delegate votes in some of the more populous states.

Social media reacted to the news with a number of takes on Sanders, Biden and the Democratic Party.
