Although Sen. Bernie Sanders eventually endorsed Hillary Clinton, he may not have gotten his wife to change her mind.
Jane Sanders had “begged” Vermont’s Gov. Peter Shumlin not to endorse Clinton according to an email dated May 20, 2016 and released by WikiLeaks on Thursday.

Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook wrote Clinton informing her that the governor was endorsing her and revealed that her rival candidate’s wife was against it. According to the email, Mrs. Sanders called Shumlin twice trying to get him to change his mind.
“I just talked to the Gov and his Political Dir. He called Bernie a few hours ago and said he’s endorsing you, Madame Secretary,” Mook wrote. “Apparently Jane Sanders has now called him twice and begged him to change his mind and he’s stood firm.”
But in a tweet of her own, Jane denied the claim that she “begged” the governor.

Apparently, even in his home state, Sanders could not stand against the influence the Clinton campaign wielded over establishment Democrats. The Democratic governor’s endorsement of Clinton came just as Sanders announced details of his campaign kickoff.
