WASHINGTON, July 11 (Reuters) - US Senator Bernie Sanders is set to throw his support behind fellow Democrat Hillary Clinton's bid for the White House on Tuesday during a rally they will hold together in New Hampshire, ending a bitterly fought battle for the presidential nomination that had fractured the party.
An endorsement from Sanders could boost Clinton's chances against Republican rival Donald Trump in the Nov. 8 election, and comes after she offered Sanders - a self-described democratic socialist - concessions on policy issues like education, healthcare, and climate change.
At the New Hampshire event, the pair will discuss a shared "commitment to building an America that is stronger together and an economy that works for everyone, not just those at the top," according to statements released Monday by both campaigns.
