The stock prices of major healthcare companies surged Wednesday following Bernie Sanders’ Super Tuesday disaster; adding hundreds of points to the Dow Jones, Nasdaq, and S&P 500.
“U.S. equity markets surged at Wednesday’s opening bell after former Vice President Joe Biden’s strong showing on Super Tuesday lifted health care stocks,” reports Fox Business. “The early gains have the major averages on track to win back a majority of the losses they suffered a day earlier despite the Federal Reserve’s emergency rate cut to insulate the U.S. economy from the new coronavirus.”
“Health care stocks, led by the insurers, soared in response to Biden’s big night. The names had been badly beaten down, underperforming the S&P 500, as Sanders, who is an advocate of Medicare-for-all, climbed in the polls. UnitedHealth Group, which was up close to 10 percent, adds 6.78 points with every gain of $1,” adds the website.

BERNIE BLINDSIDED! Hillary Clinton Calls Sanders’ Entire Campaign ‘Baloney,’ Says Just a ‘Career Politician’
Twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton ripped Bernie Sanders hours before the polls closed on Super Tuesday; calling his entire campaign “baloney” and labeling the far-left lawmaker a “career politician.”
“That was my authentic opinion then; it’s my authentic opinion now,” Clinton told Good Morning America, referring to her previous comments, “He was a career politician. It’s all just baloney and I feel so bad that people got sucked into it.”
“I think we ought to be more understanding and realistic on what it takes to get change in this big, complicated, pluralistic democracy of ours.” @HillaryClinton says she stands by her opinion in her @hulu documentary that Bernie Sander's campaign is "just bologna." pic.twitter.com/vJTCSBAUDt

“My reaction is, let’s follow the rules,” Clinton said when asked to comment on a potential brokered convention. “We’ve got rules. We had rules last time and we have rules this time. I think it’s always a good idea to follow the rules. Everybody knew what they were when you got into it.”

BREAKING NOW: Joe Biden Wins the Alabama Democratic Primary
From the Fox News Desk:
“BREAKING: It’s 8 p.m. and polls have now closed in four more Super Tuesday States – Alabama, Maine, Massachusetts and Oklahoma.
The Fox News Decision Desk can now project that former Vice President Joe Biden will win the state of Alabama, racking up his third victory of the night – the other two being Virginia and North Carolina. But it is too early to call the other states, including Massachusetts, where home state Senator Elizabeth Warren is surprisingly locked in a three-way race with Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders and former Vice President Joe Biden.
Voting was supposed to have ended in Tennessee at 8, but deadly tornadoes prompted state officials to keep some polls open later. So Fox News will refrain from making a projection for now.”
