“I do think the question is, can we conduct the remaining part of the campaign with a civil tone, with an issues focus so that we’re not doing anything that would jeopardize our ability to unite the party at the end of this process?” Fallon told CNN’s “New Day.”
The Hill reports:
Fallon called Clinton’s lead “essentially insurmountable” and said that “when the time comes,” her campaign would expect Sanders to endorse Clinton and campaign on her behalf. He noted that Clinton did exactly that in 2008 when she realized she could not beat then-Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.).
Sanders has repeatedly blasted Clinton’s ties to Wall Street and openly mocked her big-dollar speeches to banks, saying sarcastically during a Tuesday rally that her speeches must have been “so extraordinary, so enlightening, so globally transforming, written in Shakespearian prose.”
“I think you’ve seen in the course of this New York primary campaign that these suggestions and insinuations that she’s somehow beholden to the financial industry just didn’t set well with these voters, and I think they rejected those attacks and insinuations last night,” Fallon said Wednesday.
