[July 07, 2016]
(Reuters) - Democratic presumptive presidential nominee Hillary Clinton
could receive her rival Bernie Sanders' endorsement at a public event
next week, ABC News reported on Wednesday, citing unnamed sources close
to the Sanders campaign.
Democratic U.S. presidential candidate Bernie Sanders and his wife Jane
O'Meara Sanders arrive for a meeting with Democratic U.S. presidential
candidate Hillary Clinton at a hotel in Washington, U.S., June 14, 2016.
The two campaigns
are discussing the matter and "Sanders’ endorsement of Clinton
could come sometime next week, possibly at an event in New
Hampshire," ABC News said.
Sanders, a U.S. senator from Vermont who describes himself as a
democratic socialist, said last month he would vote for the
former secretary of state in the Nov. 8 election to stop likely
Republican nominee Donald Trump.
But he has not quit the race and has said he will continue to
push for a liberal agenda heading into the Democratic National
Convention in Philadelphia from July 25 to 28, when Clinton's
nomination is expected to become official.
