Sen. Hillary Clinton will hold an event with supporters by Friday, likely ending her historic bid for the White House and ceding the Democratic nomination to Barack Obama, ABC News has learned.
June 5 (Bloomberg) -- New York Senator Hillary Clinton said she will end a race that brought her closer than any woman in history to the U.S. presidency and in two days announce her endorsement of Illinois Senator Barack Obama.
``I have said throughout the campaign that I would strongly support Senator Obama if he were the Democratic Party's nominee, and I intend to deliver on that promise,'' Clinton, 60, said in an e-mail to supporters early this morning.
The announcement came two days after Obama, 46, clinched the nomination by amassing the required number of delegates to the Democratic National Convention in August. Clinton said she will help ``rally the party'' behind Obama in his campaign against presumptive Republican nominee John McCain.
``The stakes are too high and the task before us too important to do otherwise,'' Clinton said.
