WASHINGTON (AP) — Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are ending the primary calendar with a face-to-face meeting on Tuesday. And it could set the tone for Democratic unity and next month’s party convention in Philadelphia.
Clinton and Sanders plan to meet on the night of the final presidential primary in the District of Columbia. That contest will have no bearing on Clinton’s role as the presumptive nominee, but it marks a transition in the lengthy primary fight between the two rivals.
The Vermont senator has vowed to do all he can to prevent Republican Donald Trump from reaching the White House but suggested he will not endorse Clinton immediately. He wants to push for progressive parts of the party platform.
