Sen. Bernie Sanders will join Hillary Clinton on Tuesday in New Hampshire in a step toward unity after their contentious primary.  

A press release from the Clinton campaign said Sanders will appear with her in Portsmouth. Sanders won the state in early February and waged a fierce battle against the presumptive nominee through the last contests in June.  

The announcement comes as Clinton has announced policies that Sanders has praised, such as making  in-state public colleges tuition free for families making up to $125,000 and creating  a “public option” insurance plan under the Affordable Care Act.  

Sanders has largely been speculated to endorse Clinton soon.  

But the press release does not say that explicitly Sanders will endorse Clinton, just that the two will “discuss their commitment to building an America that is stronger together and an economy that works for everyone, not just those at the top.”
