NEW YORK/SAN FRANCISCO – Bernie Sanders announced Wednesday that he would soon be laying off “hundreds” of paid staffers to his presidential campaign and redirect his remaining resources to California.
“We want to win as many delegates as we can, so we do not need workers now in states around country,” Sanders said in an interview with the New York Times. “We don’t need people right now in Connecticut. That election is over. We don’t need them in Maryland. So what we are going to do is allocate our resources to the 14 contests that remain, and that means that we are going to be cutting back on staff.”
