Sanders, the U.S. Senator for Vermont who lost the Democratic primary and endorsed Hillary Clinton, is expected to offer an opening night address to encourage unity and “make it clear that Hillary Clinton is by far superior to Donald Trump on every major issue from economics and healthcare to education and the environment,” Sanders' spokesman Michael Briggs told The Guardian.
Also on the speaker list for Monday night is Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy.
The convention begins one day after Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz announced her resignation following leaked e-mails that suggested the party favored Clinton over Sanders in the lead up to the Democratic primary.
