Hillary Clinton and US Senator Bernie Sanders shook hands during a March debate. The candidates will hold a joint event Tuesday in Portsmouth, N.H.

Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and rival Bernie Sanders will hold a joint event Tuesday at a Portsmouth, N.H., school amid speculation about whether Sanders will endorse Clinton before the party’s convention later this month.

Doors at Portsmouth High School will open at 9 a.m., according to a release from Sanders’ campaign.

According to a report last week, the campaigns had discussed holding an event in New Hampshire this week where Sanders would endorse Clinton.


Clinton secured the Democratic nomination last month. She has made overtures to Sanders and his supporters, including a proposal intended to make college more affordable.
