Super Tuesday ended with resounding victories for former Vice President Joe Biden, putting his campaign back on track. Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) is not giving up yet, though, and released a blistering ad against Biden in Florida on Wednesday.
Bernie Sanders is up with a new negative TV ad against Joe Biden, which points out that he entertained cuts to Social Security, in Florida.— Holly Otterbein (@hollyotterbein) March 4, 2020
Some Sanders supporters had wanted him to go after Biden on TV long before today — he’d only put this video online. https://t.co/thYQOYZ31Q
Sen. Sanders' ad points to Biden's history of voting to cut funding to Social Security.
"When I argued that we should freeze federal spending, I meant social security as well, I meant Medicare, and Medicaid, I meant veterans' benefits. But I meant every single solitary thing in the government," the ad quotes Biden saying.
Sen. Sanders also released a campaign ad highlighting his work with and support from former President Obama, which is a serious blow to former Vice President Biden. The 44th president has remained quiet thus far in the Democratic primary.

Sen. Sanders' angry opposition to Biden also seems to be shared by his supporters, as we saw at Biden's victory rally Tuesday night:

With Biden's overwhelming victory in Texas, getting a win in Florida will undoubtedly be an uphill battle for Sen. Sanders.
