Vice President Joseph R. Biden called on Sen. Bernard Sanders to be “more aggressive” in denouncing the behavior of his supporters and said he believes Mr. Sanders will support Hillary Clinton as the eventual Democratic nominee.

“I’m confident that Bernie will be supportive if Hillary wins, which the numbers indicate will happen,” Mr. Biden said on a trip to Columbus, Ohio. “There’s no fundamental split in the Democratic Party.”

Referring to Sanders’ supporters engaging in disruptive behavior at last weekend’s Democratic Party convention in Nevada, Mr. Biden said, “That’s not Bernie.”

“What Bernie’s going to have to do, if that happens again, he’s going to have to be more aggressive in speaking out about it,” the vice president said.
