Ahead of the South Carolina primary, Bernie Sanders has scored more support among Black leaders, while Hillary Clinton still holds a lead in the state. As Democratic presidential hopefuls Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton continue to battle for key endorsements from prominent Black figures in South Carolina, the daughter of fatal police brutality victim Eric Garner met with the senator from Vermont on Tuesday as Keith Ellison, the first Muslim member of Congress, also endorsed him. Erica Garner, whose father was choked to death by New York police Officer Daniel Pantaleo in 2014, praised Sanders as a “dedicated leader” and a “fearless public servant that is not afraid to stand against the establishment for the people” while introducing him at an event at the University of South Carolina. The campaign event comes after Erica Garner starred in a powerful new political advertisement supporting Bernie Sanders released last week.
