Source: Camps in talks for Sanders to nominate Clinton
PHILADELPHIA — Representatives for Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton are in discussions for the Vermont senator to formally nominate Clinton as the Democratic presidential nominee in an effort to showcase party unity after the convention roll call vote Tuesday, a senior Democratic Party source told CNN.
The news follows Sanders speech to the Democratic National Convention on Monday, where he empathized with the disappointment of his supporters but said they must support Hillary Clinton in the fall.
Some of his supporters have struggled with that message, interrupting some convention speakers and delegate breakfasts. Sanders, who was booed during a California delegation breakfast Tuesday, is encouraging his backers to think of what a Trump presidency would look like.
“It is easy to boo, but it is harder to look your kids in the face if we are living under a Trump presidency,” Sanders responded.
