At a campaign event in Portsmouth, New Hampshire on Tuesday, Hillary Clinton received the endorsement of her former rival for the Democratic nomination, Senator Bernie Sanders. During his speech, Sanders expressed his full support for Clinton saying that she will be a great president, and he stressed the importance of electing her over Republican Donald Trump. He said, “I have come here today not to talk about the past but to focus on the future. That future will be shaped more by what happens on Nov. 8 in voting booths across our nation than by any other event in the world. I have come here to make it as clear as possible as to why I am endorsing Hillary Clinton and why she must become our next president.”

Clinton also spoke to the crowd thanking Senator Sanders for his support and congratulating him on a hard fought campaign. Clinton then turned to her next task, unifying the Democratic party behind her. Speaking to Sanders’ supporters she said, “You will always have a seat at the table when I am in the White House.” Clinton then discussed a number of her platform points including equal rights, free college education, and universal health care. A full video from the event is below.

Clinton then attended a special showing of the hit Broadway musical Hamilton. The sold out performance was a fundraiser for Hillary for America.
