U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont plans to join fellow Democrat Hillary Clinton on Tuesday at a rally in New Hampshire, their campaigns said, an appearance where he is expected to endorse his rival after a hard-fought presidential primary campaign. Sanders and Clinton will discuss “their commitment to building an America that is stronger together and an economy that works for everyone, not just those at the top,” according to statements released on Monday from both campaigns. Sanders made his most pro-Clinton comments to date on Thursday, signaling that a formal endorsement of his primary rival was imminent.
We have got to do everything that we can to defeat Donald Trump and elect Hillary Clinton.

Sanders has resisted endorsing the former U.S. secretary of state, senator and first lady since she clinched the Democratic nomination last month. Instead, he chose to continue his campaign as leverage to win concessions on his progressive policy agenda and reforms to the Democratic Party’s nominating process.
The nomination is not the only aspect of what politics is about. What politics is about is trying to do well by the middle class and working families. That is what I’m struggling to do.
