Bernie endorses Hillary

We must beat Trump, he says

by Mike Andrew - SGN Staff Writer

Bernie Sanders endorsed his former rival for the Democratic presidential nomination, Hillary Clinton, on July 12, insisting that voters must unite against Republican Donald Trump.

'I have come here to make it as clear as possible why I am endorsing Hillary Clinton and why she must become our next president,' Sanders said at a joint rally in New Hampshire.

'I intend to do everything I can to make certain she will be the next president of the United States.'

While Clinton supporters may have preferred to see this as Bernie's concession speech, he continued to press his signature issues and spoke with pride of the achievements of his campaign.

'Let me begin by thanking the 13 million Americans who voted for me during the Democratic primaries,' Sanders said.

'Our campaign won the primaries and caucuses in 22 states, and when the roll call at the Democratic National Convention is announced, it will show that we won almost 1,900 delegates.

'Together we have begun a political revolution to transform America, and that revolution continues. Together we will continue to fight for a government that represents all of us and not just the one percent.'

In fact, Sanders may have lost the Democratic nomination, but he dominated the debate on issues, extracting concessions from the Clinton camp on point after point in the party platform.

To realize these promises, Sanders said, Clinton must be elected president.

'This campaign is about the needs of the American people and addressing the very serious crises that we face,' Sanders said as Clinton stood nodding at his side.

'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.'

In her speech that followed, Clinton struck a triumphal note but also addressed the Sanders supporters at the rally.

She cited a number of policy issues where Sanders had pulled her to the left during the course of the election - minimum wage, the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal, and college affordability.

'Sen. Sanders has brought people off the sidelines and into the political process,' she said. 'He has energized and inspired a generation of young people who care deeply about our country. To everyone here and everyone cross the country who poured your heart and soul into Sen. Sanders' campaign: Thank you.'

The Sanders endorsement will help Clinton 'enormously,' said former Massachusetts Rep. Barney Frank, a Clinton supporter and co-chair of the Democratic convention's rules committee.

Staffers from both camps said that while the June meeting between the candidates laid the groundwork for the New Hampshire event, the respective campaign managers, Robby Mook for Clinton and Jeff Weaver for Sanders, worked out the details.

The two talked daily, a Clinton aide said, and Mook traveled to Burlington, Vt., where the Sanders campaign is based, so that the two could meet and flesh out details of future joint events.

Mook also began working directly with Jane Sanders, the senator's wife, to craft Clinton's policy statements on college affordability and health care that moved her closer to Sanders' positions.
