Sanders supports Clinton in battle for the White House
Bernie Sanders has endorsed Hillary Clinton as the Democratic nominee in the race for the White House.
The Vermont senator stood side-by-side with his rival as he backed Mrs Clinton at a rally in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.
He pledged that his “political revolution” would continue, but acknowledged that Mrs Clinton had won the delegates required to snag the nomination.
This has been true for weeks, and Democrats have been angling for Mr Sanders to drop out of the campaign and endorse the former secretary of state.
Mr Sanders promised to help Mrs Clinton win in November, calling her “far and away the best candidate” to lead the country.
