On Monday during a live stream, former Democrat presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders endorsed Joe Biden for the Democrat nomination for president.
During the live stream, Bernie told Biden, “we need you in the White House.”
He continued, “I’m asking every Democrat, I’m asking every independent, I’m asking a lot of Republicans to come together in this campaign to support your candidacy, which I endorse.”
“If I am the nominee, which it looks like now you just made me, I am going to need you, not just to win the campaign, but to govern,” said Biden.
“It’s no great secret Joe that you and I have our differences, and we are not going to paper them over. That’s real,” Sanders said. “But I hope that these task forces will come together, utilizing the best minds and people in your campaign and in my campaign, to work out real solutions to these very, very important problems.”
Sanders previously endorsed failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in her run for president after a bitter primary putting him up against the Democrat Party establishment.
