Sanders Campaigns For Clinton; Warren Influences HRC Staff

Bernie Sanders campaigned for Hillary Clinton yesterday in New Hampshire. Elizabeth Warren is taking a personal interest in both the campaign and presidential staff.

Bernie Sanders campaigned for Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire on Labor Day, denouncing Donald Trump as a bigot who wants to divide America. He also applauded Hillary Clinton's stand on climate change and energy efficiency investments. ABC News:

In Lebanon, NH, this afternoon, standing between two “Stronger Together” signs, Sanders praised Clinton’s policies and positions, touting the former secretary of state as the “superior candidate.” He then turned to Donald Trump, slamming the Republican nominee as a “pathological liar” with a campaign based upon “bigotry.”

"No candidate is perfect," Sanders told the crowd of about 400 people, but he said, “We have to ask ourselves a very simple question – what are the issues and what are the positions of the candidates on those issues."

"If you look at the campaign on that basis, the answer is 100 percent clear ... Hillary Clinton is the superior candidate hands down,” he said.

Sanders is not the only liberal favorite in the Clinton camp. Politico notes that Elizabeth Warren is taking a personal interest in the hires for a future Clinton administration. In addition to recognizing "Hell, no" appointments that will not be supported, Warren has endorsed Clinton hires for the presidential campaign, particularly in an economic advisory capacity:

The liberal wing’s early jockeying is already paying off. ...Rohit Chopra, who was hired by Warren at the CFPB, is joining Clinton’s transition team. And Heather Boushey, popular among progressives because of her focus on income inequality, was recently chosen as the team’s chief economist. Liberals applauded both hires as a sign Clinton is taking them seriously.
