Election 2016: Clinton gets nod from rival Sanders
Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has received an endorsement from her former rival Bernie Sanders.
The Vermont senator and former Democratic presidential candidate appeared with Mrs Clinton at a campaign event in New Hampshire.
Mrs Clinton and Mr Sanders have been negotiating since she all but guaranteed the nomination in June.
Mr Sanders hopes to have a large influence the Democratic platform.
“She will be the Democratic nominee for president and I intend to do everything I can to make certain she will be the next president of the United States,” he said.
“This campaign is about the needs of the American people and addressing the very serious crises that we face. And there is no doubt in my mind that, as we head into November, Hillary Clinton is far and away the best candidate to do that.”
