Sanders will vote for Clinton to stop Trump

U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders speaks during a rally in the Manhattan borough of New YorkBy Kouichi Shirayanagi WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders said on Friday he would vote for Hillary Clinton to stop Republican Donald Trump from winning the White House, a lukewarm show of support that his campaign said was not a formal endorsement. Sanders’ comments come after weeks of pressure from Democratic Party officials to throw his weight behind Clinton, the presumptive nominee. Clinton, the former U.S. secretary of state, senator, and first lady, needs Sanders’ supporters to boost her chances against Trump in the Nov. 8 election.
