In an interesting twist of things the Democratic presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton, has received an endorsement from her former rival Bernie Sanders.
The Vermont Senator and former Democratic presidential aspirant appeared with Mrs. Clinton at a campaign event in New Hampshire, the BBC reports.
Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Sanders have been negotiating since she all but guaranteed the nomination in June.
Mr. Sanders hopes to have a large influence on the Democratic platform.
“She will be the Democratic nominee for president and I intend to do everything I can to make certain she will be the next president of the United States,” he said.
“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.”
Some Sanders supporters booed at the joint rally and Mr. Sanders appeared to caution them to stop.
At the end of Mrs. Clinton’s remarks, the two shared a hug and smiled.
Mr. Sanders defeated Mrs. Clinton in New Hampshire’s primary contest in February.
“Thank you for your lifetime of fighting injustice,” said Mrs. Clinton, and credited Mr. Sanders for bringing new Americans into the political process.
“I’m proud to be fighting behind you. it’s a time for all of us to stand together.”
