Bernie Sanders has officially endorsed Joe Biden for president.
“We need you in the White House. I will do all that I can to see that that happens, Joe,” Bernie said to the former vice president during a livestream broadcast by Biden’s campaign.
“Today, I am asking all Americans, 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,” Bernie continued.
“I think that your endorsement means a great deal. It means a great deal to me. I think people are going to be surprised that we are apart on some issues but we’re awfully close” on others, Joe responded. “I’m going to need you — not just to win the campaign, but to govern.”
