The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary President Albert Mohler Jr. commented on the dropping out of Sanders on a Thursday morning episode of his podcast “The Briefing.”

Mohler noted that it was not long ago that Sanders was considered the inevitable victor of the Democratic primary, seeing it as evidence that the overall Party had gone far to the left.

“What he gained is pushing the Democratic Party to embrace his ideas. When it comes to the battle of ideas in the Democratic Party, it isn’t Joe Biden who won, he doesn’t have that many ideas. It’s Bernie Sanders who is, if anything, a man of ideas,” said Mohler.

“Most of the energy in the Party right now is amongst the most radical fringe on the left. Just consider ‘the Squad’ as they are known in the House of Representatives, just consider all the air time and the influence in the Democratic Party that Bernie and his followers now have.”
