WASHINGTON (CNN) – Democratic Presidential Candidate Bernie Sanders is expected to endorse Hillary Clinton for president next week.

People familiar with the situation tell CNN the Vermont Senator is poised to endorse Clinton Tuesday at a campaign event in New Hampshire.

It all depends on any disagreements in the Democratic Party platform being resolved during a party meeting this weekend in Florida.

Sanders has pushed for items on his wishlist to be included in the party platform before any endorsement happens. This includes allowing people aged 55 and older to buy into Medicare and opposing the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

Sanders ran a spirited primary campaign against Clinton earlier this year, but fell short in the delegate count.

He has not officially pulled out of the presidential race.
