Bernie Sanders Endorses Hillary Clinton Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders formally declared an end to their political rivalry Tuesday, joining forces to take on a shared enemy: 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 here. “Secretary Clinton has won the Democratic nomination and I congratulate her for that.” The 74-year-old self-described democratic socialist, who has been a thorn in Clinton’s side over the last year, pledged to support his former rival through Election Day: … Continue reading →
The Clinton-Sanders Unity Summit Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders will formally declare an end to their political rivalry Tuesday, a moment that couldn’t come quickly enough for the former secretary of state trying to unite Democrats against Donald Trump.

Sanders waved as his House colleagues met him with strong applause, and he left shortly after Clinton didn’t attend the protest, though she met with House Democrats earlier on Wednesday. .@SenSanders lends his support for the sit in. #Enough … Continue reading →
Sanders Returns To The Senate For Gun Votes For the first time since Jan. 2, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) walked into the Senate to cast votes. He’d left as an unpretentious populist senator whose presidential campaign was clearly catching on; he returned with a full Secret Service detail and motorcade, with a few onlookers in the public gallery sporting brightly colored “Bernie” T-shirts. Other than that, Sanders’s re-emergence as a senator was remarkably low-key. The senator slipped into his office in the mid-afternoon, joined by his wife Jane and watched by an NBC News cameraman. Two hours later he, Jane, and … Continue reading →
