Senator Bernie Sanders has officially endorsed Hillary Clinton for President of the United States.

Sanders stood side-by-side with Clinton at a rally in New Hampshire, promising to work to help Clinton win and calling her far and away the best candidate. I have come here to make it as clear as possible as to why I am endorsing Hillary Clinton and why she must become our next president.

After that turgid start, though, Sanders pivoted to describing the common causes between the two sometimes bitter rivals for the Democratic nomination.

"Too many Americans are still being left out, left behind and ignored. In the richest country in the history of the world, there is too much poverty, there is too much despair", said Sanders, adding that Clinton understood better than Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee, that the country must fix a rigged economy that "sends nearly all of the new wealth and income to the top one percent". Lynch was the only one who hasn't decided whether she will back Clinton in the general election.

Clinton delegate Terry Schanz said the Democratic Party got stronger with the endorsement. Sanders' campaign: "Thank you".

And throughout this campaign, Senator Sanders has brought people off the sidelines and into the political process. "That's what most of her supporters like about her".

"Bernie Sanders, who has lost most of his leverage, has totally sold out to Crooked Hillary Clinton". Elizabeth Warren, both of whom are wildly popular among Democrats. She has also warned a Trump presidency would push the country in the wrong direction.

It only took Clinton four days to come out in support of current President Barack Obama in his bid in 2008.

While Finger says he will support Clinton when he goes to the polls, he is anxious for what other Bernie supporters will choose.

"Advocates for poor people and progressive causes say they still plan to make a stink - literally - during Hillary Clinton's big night accepting the Democratic presidential nomination this month".
