Sanders says will vote for Clinton in US election

WASHINGTON: Bernie Sanders said Friday he will vote for Hillary Clinton in the US presidential election in November, bowing to his rival for the Democratic nomination but stopping short of endorsing her. Asked on MSNBC whether he would cast his ballot for Clinton, the Vermont senator—who waged a surprisingly tough campaign against the former secretary of state during the primaries—said, “Yes.” “I think the issue right here is I’m going to do everything I can to defeat Donald Trump,” Sanders said, referring to the billionaire businessman who is the presumptive Republican presidential nominee. But rather than praise Clinton or offer an outright concession—something many Democrats have been hoping to hear ahead of the party’s nominating convention next month— Sanders instead laid into the Republican flagbearer as unfit for the Oval Office.
