"I have come here to make it as clear as possible as to why I am endorsing Hillary Clinton," Sanders said while standing next to Clinton at an event in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.
"This campaign is not really about Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump or Bernie Sanders. This campaign is about the needs of the American people and addressing the very serious crises that we face," Sanders said. "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."
