July 12, 2016 02:17 IST

Bernie Sanders would join presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton at an election rally in New Hampshire on Tuesday, the two campaigns said even though the Vermont senator has yet to endorse his former rival for the party nomination.

This would be for the first time that Sanders would campaign with party rival Clinton, giving rise to expectations that the the Vermont senator would finally endorse the former Secretary of State.

But Sanders' campaign, who lost the primary race to Clinton, did not mention this in the statement issued on Monday.

"United States senator Bernie Sanders on Tuesday will join Hillary Clinton for a campaign event at Portsmouth High School to discuss their commitment to building an America that is stronger together and an economy that works for everyone, not just those at the top," the brief statement said.

The two coming together is seen as Sanders' endorsement for Clinton. Over the weekend Sanders praised Clinton.
