When Bernie Sanders endorses Hillary Clinton later Tuesday in New Hampshire, the Republican National Committee is ready to pounce with a well-documented list of talking points — the Vermont senator's own attacks on the Democratic nominee.

"While Sanders' endorsement of Clinton today is sure to be filled with sunshine and smiles, there is no forgetting the contentious primary between the two rivals that has left many of his supporters unwilling to back her," reads the top takeaway on GOP.com.

What follows is a top 15 list of the attacks Sanders used on Clinton during the campaign, replete with a video clip for nearly every point.

The list of what Sanders has said about Clinton:
  • Hillary can't lead a political revolution;
  • Clinton not qualified to be president;
  • Clinton displays bad judgment;
  • Attacked her ties to Wall Street;
  • Attacked her foundation's record of foreign donations;
  • Called her out for using term "super predator;"
  • Clinton's voting record on "virtually every trade agreement;"
  • Attacked her support of fracking for natural gas;
  • Criticized her inconsistent support for a $15 minimum wage;
  • Her lack of support for Medicare for all Americans;
  • Using gay rights for political gain;
  • Pointing out her failed policies in Libya;
  • Attacked her for her non-stance on payroll tax cap;
  • Attacked her for backing soda tax;
  • Gone after Bill Clinton's treatment of women.
Donald Trump has repeatedly been in attack mode on Nos. 2 and 3 — not qualified and bad judgment — but the GOP's ability to use Sanders' own words should be powerful over the next few months.

"Maybe the American people might wonder about your qualifications, Madame Secretary, when you voted for the war in Iraq, the most disastrous foreign policy blunder in the modern history America," Sanders is quoted as saying in April.
