Bernie Sanders endorsed presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton at a rally in New Hampshire on Tuesday, where both spoke about a shared goal of defeating Republican Donald Trump.
“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,” Sanders said, complimenting Clinton as he brought an official end to a long and bitter Democratic primary.
“Throughout this campaign, Senator Sanders has brought people off the sidelines and into the political process. He has energized and inspired a generation of young people who care deeply about our country and are building a movement that is bigger than one candidate or one campaign,” Clinton said, in turn. “So thank you, thank you, Bernie, for your endorsement, but more than that, thank you for your lifetime of fighting injustice. I am proud to be fighting alongside you.”
