On Tuesday, July 12, former Democrat presidential candidate US Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont) endorsed Hillary Clinton for President ending the most divisive primary race for either party since then former California Governor Ronald Reagan challenged President Gerald Ford in the Republican Primary in 1976.
Sen. Sanders said in a statement to supporters, “Today, I endorsed Hillary Clinton to be our next president. I know that some of you will be disappointed with that decision. But I believe that, at this moment, our country, our values, and our common vision for a transformed America, are best served by the defeat of Donald Trump and the election of Hillary Clinton.” “In the weeks since the last primary, both campaigns have worked together in good faith to bridge some of the policy issues that divided us during the election. Did we come to agreement on everything? Of course not. But we made important steps forward.”
