Bernie Sanders did not get a lot of love in Florida, losing the state to Hilary Clinton in the Democratic Presidential Primary. But a large swath of Democrats still support him. Now he’s urging his Florida supporters  to back Clinton and unite behind the goal of keeping Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump out of the White House.
