The Clinton campaign said Sanders would join the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee during an event in Portsmouth, N.H. The two will discuss “building an America that is stronger together and an economy that works for everyone, not just those at the top."

Clinton has taken several steps toward Sanders in recent days, including by calling for a public option to be added to ObamaCare. 

Sanders praised Clinton over the weekend after she released her expanded healthcare platform.  

“I congratulate Secretary Clinton for this extraordinary initiative,” he said during a press call on Saturday. "It will save lives, ease suffering and it will improve healthcare in America and it will cut healthcare costs. It is a significant step forward as we advance toward the goal of healthcare for all Americans.” 

Clinton is seeking to win over Sanders supporters, many of whom have been cool to her candidacy after the Democratic primary.
