“He hasn’t said that directly to me,” the adviser was cited as saying. “The only reason I'm hesitating at all is because, yeah, if Bernie were running away with it, I think maybe we would all have to say something. But I don't think that's likely. It's not happening.”

Obama said earlier this month that he would support whoever is nominated by the party, comments his spokesperson also referred to.
