Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton will be joined by Democratic rival and Senator Bernie Sanders at a campaign rally Tuesday in the Northeastern city of Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

The Clinton campaign says the two candidates will "discuss their commitment to building an America that is stronger together and an economy that works for everyone, not just those at the top."

There is widespread speculation that Sanders could endorse Clinton at the rally. Sanders has not said he would endorse her, but told reporters Saturday the two candidates were coming together and to stay tuned.

The rally in New Hampshire, where Sanders decisively defeated Clinton by 22 percentage points in the February primary, follows several private discussions between the two camps over policy matters.

Sanders pushed for policy agreements on higher education, health care and a $15 an hour federal minimum wage. Some of Sanders policy proposals were included in a draft of the Democratic Party platform over the weekend.
