Jeff Weaver does not plan to join the Clinton campaign, but has been asked by her campaign to appear at events and help with the voter organization, he told Politico.

“Like the senator I am fully behind the secretary and certainly I will make known to all the Bernie supporters around this country who know me very well — and have received emails from me from the last year plus — that I am certainly on fully on board as well,” Weaver told Politico.
 
Weaver predicted Sanders will "stump quite heavily for the secretary all across the country," especially in battleground states, after endorsing the presumptive Democratic nominee Tuesday during the pair's first joint appearance.
 
"In addition to that, he’ll be campaigning for down-ballot progressive Democrats in states all across the country — whether they are battlegrounds or not in battlegrounds. I think you are going to see a lot of Senator Sanders on the stump,” Weaver said.
 
Sanders's endorsement of Clinton came after a series of conversation between the two camps over several weeks. Talks between top officials from each camp centered on how the candidates could move forward with an agreed-upon agenda.
