Democratic supporters unite with #ImWithHer after Hillary Clinton becomes the party's nominee


Hillary Clinton may have claimed a historic victory in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination but she faces the challenge of appealing to the enthusiastic supporters of Bernie Sanders.

Sanders picked up wins in North Dakota and Montana and said he will "continue the fight" in the last primary of the Democratic campaign next week in Washington.

Meanwhile some of his supporters have taken to Twitter to show their new found support of Clinton using #ImWithHer - to fight against Donald Trump in November's election.

However, many are still firmly in the Sanders camp as he announced he'd continue to fight hard in D.C., saying: "The struggle continues."
