Sweeney likely to make presidential endorsement soon

Senate president still backs open primary

Senate President Steve Sweeney still isn’t ready to endorse a presidential candidate, though he indicated that may soon change.

“We’re looking at moving forward,” he said when asked if he was prepared to back former Vice President Joe Biden. “Myself and others will have a decision probably in the near future.”

Over the past week, the Democratic presidential primary has faced a stark winnowing of candidates.

Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) are the only viable candidates left in the field.

Sweeney said he still supports an open presidential primary.
