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.”
