Former Vice President Joe Biden has said he’s had enough debates with Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-Vt.). The two candidates have not been active on the campaign trail due to the coronavirus pandemic, which has postponed primary elections in several states.

Biden’s comments came after the Sanders campaign announced the Vermont senator is ready for a 12th debate.

“If there is a debate in April, he plans to be there,” stated spokesman Mike Casca.

As of Wednesday, the former vice president was leading the Democrat primary with more than 1,200 delegates. He has said he’s focused on addressing the coronavirus pandemic.

“My focus is just dealing with this crisis right now, I haven’t thought about any more debates,” said Biden. “I think we’ve had enough debates, I think we should get on with this.”

His supporters have called on Sanders to drop out of the race, but Biden has said that decision is up to the senator.
