It's Official: Sanders to Endorse Clinton on Tuesday

Hillary Clinton will appear at a rally in New Hampshire on Tuesday with Sen. Bernie Sanders, who will endorse her, the Clinton campaign has now confirmed.

The rally will take place at a high school in Portsmouth where the two will "discuss their commitment to building an America that is stronger together and an economy that works for everyone, not just those at the top."

The announcement comes on the heels of the Democratic Platform Committee's meeting in Orlando, Florida over the weekend.

Bernie Sanders got what he wanted here this weekend: A Democratic platform stamped in section after section by his progressive values.

Hillary Clinton got what she wanted, too: A path to bring Sanders' supporters fully into the fold a week before the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.

After two days of marathon negotiations and deals on issues like the minimum wage, energy and health care, the party's platform committee approved a final draft in the wee Sunday morning hours. Most notably, Clinton embraced Sanders' call for a $15-an-hour federal minimum wage -- with Sanders making the concession that it would be phased in "over time."

And Clinton's campaign announced her support for a "public option" -- a government-run alternative to private health insurance -- bringing her closer to Sanders on health care.

The result: Sanders is pleased enough with the platform, three Democratic sources said, that he has committed to a joint event with Clinton Tuesday in New Hampshire and is prepared to endorse her.

"We have made enormous strides," Sanders said in a statement Sunday. "Thanks to the millions of people across the country who got involved in the political process -- many for the first time -- we now have the most progressive platform in the history of the Democratic Party."
