Sanders to join Clinton on campaign trail in show of party unity

Democratic U.S. presidential candidates Clinton and Sanders stand together during a campaign rally in PortsmouthDemocrat Bernie Sanders will team up with Hillary Clinton on the campaign trail for the first time on Tuesday, joining her in New Hampshire, where he is expected to endorse her White House campaign in a belated show of party unity. Five weeks after Clinton clinched the Democratic presidential nomination, the U.S. senator from Vermont is scheduled to join her at a rally designed to put their bitter primary campaign behind them and emphasize a shared commitment to beating Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee, in the Nov. 8 election. The appearance in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, concludes weeks of negotiations between the two camps and comes after Clinton last week adopted elements of Sanders’ plans for free in-state college tuition and expanded affordable healthcare coverage.
