Joe Biden retreated from an attack on Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) during CNN’s Democratic presidential debate on Sunday night after Sanders challenged Biden on accusations that Biden was making against him.
During an intense back and forth on attack ads and super PACs, Biden asked Sanders, “You get rid of the nine super PACs you have?”
“I don’t have any super PACs,” Sanders responded.
“You have nine, you want me to list ‘me?” Biden fired back.
“Yeah, you go ahead and list them,” Sanders responded.
Biden deflected, saying, “Come on, give me a break.”

“It was unclear which groups Biden was referring to, though a number of issue-based organizations and their related super PACs have endorsed Sanders, including the immigration reform-supporting Dream Defenders Fight PAC and the environmental activism group Sunrise Movement PAC,” The Hill reported. “Our Revolution, a nonprofit that was founded by Sanders campaign surrogates after his failed 2016 White House bid, has actively supported the senator and candidates adjacent to his views, though the group is not registered as a super PAC and is instead a 501(c)(4).”
