The photo op wasn't exactly an endorsement. As Time reported, Brit initially included #ImWithHer, then later edited her post and lost the hashtag.

Tickets are on sale for Spears' current engagement at the 4,500-seat Axis at Planet Hollywood here.

As AJC political journalist Aaron Gould Sheinin reported, Nevada gave Clinton “a crucial win ahead of a round of votes in the South.

A defeat would have been a bitter blow for her campaign after her 22-point loss to Sanders in New Hampshire and narrow victory in Iowa.

Instead, the win gives her a shot of momentum ahead of next Saturday’s Democratic primary in South Carolina and the March 1 SEC Primary featuring votes in Georgia and seven other states below the Mason-Dixon Line.”
