Socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) has endorsed presumptive Democrat nominee Joe Biden for president.
The Vermont senator made the announcement in an interview with Biden on Monday, saying: “We need you in the White House. I will do all that I can to see that that happens, Joe.”

The former vice president expressed his gratitude for the socialist “outsider’s” endorsement.
“I thank you for your endorsement, your support…it means a great deal to me personally,” Biden told Sanders.
Bernie’s acquiescence to the establishment is notable given his anti-establishment platform and forceful rhetoric.
I’ve got news for the Republican establishment. I’ve got news for the Democratic establishment. They can’t stop us.

This isn’t the first time Sanders bent the knee to the establishment.
“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 had said at a joint rally in New Hampshire. “Secretary Clinton has won the Democratic nomination and I congratulate her for that.”
