    Sanders and Clinton will "discuss their commitment to building an American that is stronger together and an economy that works for everyone, not just those at the top."

    Bernie Sanders has confirmed he's joining Hillary Clinton for an event in New Hampshire this week.

    In an email to supporters on Monday morning, Sanders said he'll be at Clinton's campaign event at Portsmouth High School on Tuesday.

    Sanders and Clinton will "discuss their commitment to building an American that is stronger together and an economy that works for everyone, not just those at the top."

    The announcement comes after speculation last week that the longtime Vermont lawmaker will soon endorse his rival for the Democratic presidential nomination.

    Sanders defeated Clinton by a wide margin in New Hampshire, in the nation's first primary.

    Sanders' endorsement will come a month after the final primary. He's pushed for policy agreements on higher education, health care and a $15 an hour federal minimum wage. Some of those policies were included in a draft of the party's platform in Orlando, Florida, over the weekend.
