In “Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign,” The Hill’s Amie Parnes and Sidewire’s Jonathan Allen write that members of the Clinton campaign reached out to Sanders aides in late September to share a script of an ad they wanted the Vermont senator to record.
In the ad, Sanders would tout Clinton for her education, healthcare and minimum wage proposals.
And he would talk about how then-Republican nominee Donald Trump was wrong about climate change and the economy.
At the end of the script were the words: “I’m with her.”
“It’s so phony!” Sanders said. “I don’t want to say that.”
Sanders did not use the slogan in the ad.
