Sanders offers strong support of Hillary Clinton

Bernie Sanders said Friday he will vote for Hillary Clinton for president, stopping short of a full endorsement of his Democratic presidential rival more than a week after the final primary contests.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) – Bernie Sanders says Hillary Clinton will make – in his words – “an outstanding president.”

Sanders, who battled Clinton in the Democratic primaries, says he’s known Clinton since she was first lady almost a quarter-century ago.

He credits Clinton with leading the fight for universal health care. He says Clinton, as a senator, was a “fierce advocate” for children’s rights.

And Sanders is ending his speech at the Democratic National Convention by saying: “I am proud to stand with her tonight.”
