Cenk Uygur says he won’t accept endorsements anymore after Sanders backlash

Liberal host-turned-congressional hopeful Cenk Uygur announced Friday he will not accept endorsements anymore following Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., receiving backlash for announcing his support of the candidate.

Uygur, a former MSNBC host who founded the progressive digital outlet The Young Turks, formally launched his bid last month to take over California’s 25th Congressional District seat left vacant by Democratic Rep. Katie Hill, who resigned amid multiple sex scandals.

On Thursday, Sanders had formally endorsed Uygur’s congressional bid.
