Democratic Party of Virginia (DPVA) Chairwoman Susan Swecker released the following statement on Bernie Sanders' endorsement of Hillary Clinton for President of the United States:
"Today marks a milestone in the fight to get Hillary Clinton elected as our next President of the United States. Bernie Sanders' endorsement is further evidence of a united Democratic Party that's ready to defeat Donald Trump, whose reckless temperament would threaten our economy, hurt working families and put our security in danger. We are grateful to Senator Sanders for the campaign he ran and for bringing together passionate Democrats under a common goal: securing a bright future for our country -- a future that simply cannot be possible without a Democrat in the White House. Senator Sanders and his supporters will be a critical ally in making this goal a reality.
"Hillary Clinton is the most qualified and prepared candidate to continue the legacy of President Obama and build an America that is stronger together -- with an economy that works for everyone, not just those at the top. Her vision, her record of getting results for children and families, and her commitment to the American people around the globe are unmatched. Thanks to a united party with shared values, Virginia will help elect Hillary Clinton president in November."
