Biden doesn't want another primary debate: 'We should get on with this'

There are no more primary debates on the schedule at the moment.

"My focus is just dealing with this crisis right now".

"So it's all about urgency, and I noticed that the president's numbers in the public have gone up and handling this crisis, but they haven't gone up in terms of his presidency", claimed Biden.

"I think we've had enough debates", Biden said.

Amid the coronavirus pandemic, Biden recently began delivering speeches and appearing on cable news while broadcasting from his house, saying Wednesday's virtual conference took four days to set up. Yet the party also said it would "continuously assess the state of the race and make appropriate, and always transparently".

But toward the end of the briefing, CNN correspondent Arlette Saenz asked Biden about the independent Vermont senator's campaign statement that "If there is a debate in April, he plans to be there". His remarks support reporting that he doesn't intend to drop out of White House contention any time soon, ramping up grassroots organizing efforts in NY ahead of the state's primary on April 28. While several states have postponed their primaries as a precaution to prevent the spread of the virus, the former vice president remains ahead of Sen.

Biden holds a significant delegate lead over rival Bernie Sanders, but Sanders has not signaled that he plans to withdraw.
