Bernie Sanders endorsed Hillary Clinton at a rally in New Hampshire on Tuesday, formally backing his opponent after a hard-fought primary.
“Secretary Clinton has won the Democratic nominating process,” Sanders told a packed audience. “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.”
In his remarks, Sanders highlighted Clinton’s stances on expanding health care coverage, and increasing sustainable energy sources. He thunderously praised Clinton for her commitment to combat income inequality, a pillar of his campaign.
“She knows that it is absurd that middle-class Americans are paying an effective tax rate higher than hedge fund millionaires,” Sanders said.
