Bernie Sanders’s campaign says it doesn’t want rival Michael Bloomberg’s money if Sanders wins the nomination, and the Bloomberg campaign says it’s willing to comply.

“It’s a hard no,” Jeff Weaver, Sanders’s campaign manager, told reporters after the Democratic presidential debate Tuesday night, according to NBC News. “Bernie has said he’s going to fund his presidential campaign with small-dollar contributions, and I think we can do that. I think we can raise over a billion dollars in small-dollar contributions.”
