Elec­tion 2016: Clin­ton gets nod from rival San­ders

Daily Trust - - AROUND THE WORLD -

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.”
