纏鬥一年 桑德斯明為希拉里站台

For Democrats who had hoped to lure Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren into a presidential campaign, independent Sen. Bernie Sanders might be the next best thing. Sanders, who is opening his official presidential campaign Tuesday in Burlington, Vermont, aims to ignite a grassroots fire among left-leaning Democrats wary of Hillary Rodham Clinton. He is laying out an agenda in step with the party's progressive wing and compatible with Warren's platform _ reining in Wall Street banks, tackling college debt and creating a government-financed infrastructure jobs program.

桑德斯12日將為希拉里站台,或將正式宣佈退選

【博聞社】美國民主黨準總統候選人希拉里陣營表示,同黨對手桑德斯將於當地時間周二(12日),出席希拉里競選活動;外界預料桑德斯將正式宣佈退選,並為希拉里背書。

希拉里陣營指出,兩人周二將赴新罕布希爾州一間高中出席活動,「討論他們都承諾要建立團結而更強大的美國,以及主張經濟應該造福每個人,而不是只有上層階級」。希拉里雖然早於6月初奪得足夠提名票,不過桑德斯卻遲遲未表態退選,亦未表態支持對方。

《紐約時報》推測,希拉里及桑德斯陣營應是經漫長對話,討論如何團結民主黨,並交換政策意見等,終促成桑德斯願意表態支持希拉里。

民主黨月底將舉行全國代表大會,正式提名希拉里為總統候選人,桑德斯將持續與希拉里陣營協商,望其理念可列入黨大會提出的黨綱中。

媒體報導,雙方已就黨綱中有關氣候變遷、健保和將全美最低時薪調高至每小時15美元等事項的內容達成協議。惟兩人仍未就跨太平洋夥伴協定(TPP)達成共識。
