According to a campaign spokesman, Sanders remains a presidential candidate and is not dropping out of the race following his endorsement of Clinton.
His supporters have largely chose to support Mrs Clinton in an effort to stop presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump from winning the White House. And Clinton, Sanders said, "is far and away the best candidate" to address the needs of the American people.
"Now, Sanders didn't announce that he was suspending or ending his own campaign". "That's what democracy is about".
With Bernie Sanders' endorsement of Hillary Rodham Clinton today he gains power and influence over the long-term direction of the Democratic party and potentially the policies of the next administration.

"I'm going to vote for Hillary because she's a Democrat, and I am just not going to vote for Donald Trump", says Coke.
Clinton will be formally nominated at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia later this month.
"Hillary Clinton understands that we must fix an economy in America that is rigged and that sends nearly all new wealth and income to the top one percent", Sanders said, listing his reasons for endorsing her. Several Sanders supporters left the room as Clinton began speaking, while another turned her back for the entire speech. Her campaign has added a $27 donation option to its website, a reference to the average $27 contribution individuals made to Sanders' campaign.
"I can't help but reflect on how much more enjoyable this election will be now that we are on the same side", Clinton said of Sanders.
Mr Sanders defeated Mrs Clinton in New Hampshire's primary contest in February. "Because, you know what, we are stronger together".
"Bernie Sanders, who has lost most of his leverage, has totally sold out to Crooked Hillary Clinton", Trump wrote on Twitter.
