WASHINGTON (AP) – Bernie Sanders is expected to spend his final primary night with Democratic rival Hillary Clinton ?- not before thousands of cheering supporters -? as he seeks to influence the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee’s agenda against Republican Donald Trump.
Sanders plans to meet privately with Clinton in Washington on Tuesday evening as the District of Columbia holds the last primary of the Democratic race. It’s not clear when, or whether, he will exit the Democratic race.
The Vermont senator has suggested an endorsement will not come immediately and has said he hopes to learn more about the kind of platform Clinton will support.
After spending a long weekend in Vermont, Sanders will meet Tuesday with Senate Democrats during their weekly luncheon.
It will be a follow up on meetings Sanders held last week with Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid of Nevada and Sen. Chuck Schumer of New York, the party’s incoming Senate leader.
