Sanders campaigns for Clinton

Sanders and Clinton

A common myth about the 2016 election season is that Bernie Sanders did not campaign for Hillary Clinton after she won the nomination - or did not campaign enough. It's repeated often on social media and sometimes implied by talking heads on the cable “news” networks.

The reality is that Sanders rigorously campaigned for Clinton in 40 cities from July 12 until November 6. Clinton thanked Sanders in this tweet in September.
