Bernie Sanders didn’t answer a question about whether he would accept hundreds of millions of dollars in help from Michael Bloomberg if the Vermont senator becomes the Democratic nominee.
Sanders told CNN’s Anderson Cooper he doesn’t have a super PAC and hasn’t asked for one, but then ignored a question about whether he’d accept Bloomberg’s money.
Instead, Sanders touted raising seven million individual contributions, averaging $18.15 from a broad base of Americans.
“There is a point at which money ceases to be significant,” he said. “We will have enough money to run a strong campaign. We will have enough money to defeat Donald Trump.”
Bloomberg has been self-funding his own presidential campaign, spending hundreds of millions of dollars on advertising alone.
