Former rivals star power palpable as he campaigns for Hillary Clinton at University of New Hampshire, in a state he won in the Democratic primary
Hillary Clinton turned to the magnetic power of Bernie Sanders on Wednesday as her battle continued to persuade younger voters to rally to her cause.
For months, Sanders and Clinton were often irascible rivals, as she edged towards the Democratic nomination and he continued to inspire a movement of millennials.
And on campus in the battleground state of New Hampshire, Sanders star power was still there for all to see as hundreds of young voters formed a line snaking across campus, which left many to make do with a spot in an overflow room as he spoke.
But while Sanders has appeared in the past to be a reluctant cheerleader, with the race now entering its final six weeks, he left the audience in no doubt it was imperative Americans elect Clinton as their next president.
All of you know that this is a very tight election. And in fact, New Hampshire could decide the outcome, he said. So I am asking you here not only to vote for Secretary Clinton, but to work hard, to get your uncles and your aunts, to get your friends to vote.
His words were delivered with genuine passion in the state where he chalked up his first primary win, setting off his remarkable underdog run.
