ROCK HILL, South Carolina – Bernie Sanders made a pitch to black voters Friday at the First in the South Democratic Presidential forum here sponsored by MSNBC. But he also defended his record on guns and said the Democratic Party must do a better job of reaching out to white working class voters.

The Vermont senator also showed off a lighter side, joking with moderator Rachel Maddow and declaring that his seven grandchildren “are the joy of my life. “

Black voters in the south, including this state, have been Sanders’ weakness in building durable campaign against frontrunner Hillary Clinton, but he made a direct ask for their votes. “I have the economic and social justice agenda that will resonate with African-American community,” he said. “I was there with Martin Luther King Jr. - Dr. King - in the March on Washington.”

CHARLESTON, S.C. — U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders will deliver the keynote address to the Southern Regional Meeting of the National Federation of Democratic Women on Saturday, the South Carolina Women’s Democratic Council announced.
“We are elated that he has chosen to speak to our Southern Region women,” the South Carolina Women’s Democratic Council said in a statement announcing the event.
Sanders’ keynote address comes days after more than 1,000 women across the Palmetto state endorsed his candidacy, signaling the campaign’s growing strength among South Carolina women.
“Sen. Sanders has been a dedicated advocate of women’s rights for more than thirty years,” state director Christopher Covert said Sunday. “We are thrilled to partner with an organization whose mission is to encourage political engagement among women in South Carolina.”

CHARLESTON, S.C. — U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders will unveil his South Carolina campaign committee on Saturday at a press conference in Columbia, the campaign announced.
Sanders’ South Carolina committee includes a group of 25 local and state elected officials, faith and Black Lives Matter leaders, county party chairs, labor activists and student organizers. More than a dozen are expected to be on hand for Saturday’s 2:00 p.m. press conference at the Columbia Conference Center.
“Saturday will be a special moment for our campaign here in South Carolina,” state director Christopher Covert said. “We are honored to have the support of such prominent community leaders and look forward to working with them closely to help elect Bernie Sanders in the Palmetto State.”
“Bernie Sanders has consistently fought for the African-American community throughout his life. His policies to enact a $15 minimum wage, reform our broken criminal justice system, eliminate felon disenfranchisement laws and ensure tuition-free public education would would benefit African-Americans in South Carolina tremendously,” said state Rep. Terry Alexander (D-Florence).
Dr. Gloria Tinubu, the first African-American woman in the state to win the Democratic nomination for Congress, said “Sanders is in the tradition of President Franklin Roosevelt, who led our parents and grandparents through one of the most challenging times in our nation’s history. Like President Roosevelt, Bernie Sanders is fighting to protect our democratic way of life and our four freedoms.”
“I support Sanders’ civil rights platform and his positions to address institutional racism and structural inequality,” Omari Fox, the leader of Columbia’s Black Lives Matter organization, said. “Sanders has been a champion of the Black Lives Matter movement and his policies to end the disastrous War on Drugs and the failed era of mass incarceration are the strongest of any candidate in the race.”

In a speech that appeared tailored to Latino residents on the city’s northeast side, Sanders vowed to stop large-scale deportations and close privately owned immigrant detention centers. He was introduced by two young Latino activists — one of whom told the story of her father’s deportation — as well as a 10-piece mariachi band.

On Monday, Sanders will speak at a national gathering of immigration activists.

Sanders' explicit appeals to Nevada’s growing Latino electorate are not accidental.

“We cannot and we should not sweep up millions of men, women and children, many of whom have been in the United States for years, and throw them out of the country,” Sanders told a national immigration reform summit meeting in Las Vegas.

Sanders, who is seeking the Democratic nomination for president, said he would use presidential powers to allow all undocumented people who have been in the United States for at least five years to stay in the country without any fear of deportation.

He added that he would not wait for Congress to act to expand Obama’s DACA, or the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.

A group of South Carolina political leaders and community activists threw their support behind Sen. Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign Saturday afternoon in the state capital.

Speaking at the Columbia Conference Center, state Rep. Terry Alexander (D-Florence) hailed Sanders' participation in the civil rights movement and said the candidate had "fought for the African American community" throughout his political career.

"I'm here because it is clear to me — it is clear to me — that Sen. Sanders is the strongest candidate here for African Americans," Alexander said. "And he will bring about change, not only in the African American community, but he will bring about change in this country that the least of these will have the same opportunity as those 1 percent at the top."

Like Alexander, most of those who stood with Sanders at Saturday's press conference were black. The message was clear: Just because the independent Vermonter represents a state in which 19 out of 20 residents are white does not mean he's incapable of representing the black community.

By Jasper Craven
Dr. Adolphus Belk Jr., a Winthrop professor who specializes in U.S. racial politics, said the poll didn’t show antipathy from black voters towards Sanders, but simply demonstrated a “lack of familiarity” with the Vermont Senator.
Belk said that while Clinton does have an organizational edge over Sanders, the former First Lady doesn’t have the strongest record on mass incarceration, which is a major issue for some African-Americans. He pointed to the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act, which was championed by then President Bill Clinton in the 90s.
“As far as former Secretary Clinton is concerned, this has been a tough issue to negotiate,” Belk said. “Now people are starting to look more critically at the 1994 crime bill which had a rather deleterious impact when you think about the growth of mass incarceration.”
Rep. Clyburn, long considered one of the most powerful U.S. Congressmen, said Clinton’s strong number in the state could change as more voters are introduced to Sanders (He is touring the state Saturday).

Sanders Hitting Hard on Differences With Clinton 

“I disagree with Hillary Clinton on virtually everything,” said Sanders during a meeting with the Boston Globe’s editorial board. “What is important is to look at is the record, the track record that Hillary Clinton has had for her long and distinguished career as a public figure.”
Sanders said he was “delighted” that Clinton, the former secretary of state, recently said she opposes the mammoth trans-pacific trade deal. But he noted that she remained silent earlier this year when liberals were trying to find the votes needed to help block legislation that limited Congress’s input to a yes or no vote.
Sanders Files Paperwork to be on New Hampshire Ballot
Sen. Bernie Sanders filed his paperwork without issue in New Hampshire Thursday to appear on the state’s first-in-the-nation presidential primary ballot. 
The longtime Vermont independent senator faced no challenges at Secretary of State Bill Gardner’s office, despite earlier concerns about whether he legally qualified as a Democrat. Sanders declared himself a Democrat Thursday, and he said he will run as a Democrat in future elections. That was good enough for Garnder.

“I’m a Democrat and should be on the ballot, I don’t think I need to say too much more,” Sanders said.

The chairman of the New Hampshire Democratic Party, Ray Buckley, accompanied Sanders and vowed to fight any challenges. Sanders brought a lawyer and a statement from the Vermont Democratic Party chair vouching for him as well, just in case. The precautions were unnecessary, however, as the senator signed the proper paperwork and delivered his fee to applause, joking that he felt like the president signing a bill.

He submitted the bill, entitled Ending Federal Marijuana Prohibition Act of 2015, to the Senate on Wednesday, seeking to remove marijuana from the Controlled Substances Act. The legislation would let all 50 states decide for themselves whether they want to legalize pot for recreational or medical use without federal intervention.

Sen. Sanders of Vermont, in an interview with The Wall Street Journal on Wednesday, also said the federal investigation of the security surrounding Mrs. Clinton’s private email account is appropriate.
In the Democratic debate last month, Mr. Sanders said voters were “sick and tired” of the focus on Mrs. Clinton’s “damn emails.” Afterward, many Democrats and political analysts said that he had appeared to dismiss her use of a private email account and server in her four years as secretary of state.
Mr. Sanders rejected that assessment on Wednesday. If her email practices foiled public-records requests or compromised classified information, those are “valid questions,” Mr. Sanders said.

Despite what Hillary Clinton and many of her supporters would have you believe, she is not the only feminist running for president in 2016. In fact, her opponent Senator Bernie Sanders has a far better record of fighting for women’s rights.
“I do understand there is a desire on the part of many women—perfectly understandable—to see a woman being elected president. And we all want to see that. We want to see women hold more political offices,” said Mr. Sanders in aninterview with The Washington Post in September. “But I also would hope that, in these enormously difficult times, where it is absolutely imperative that we stand up to the billionaire class, bring our people together, to fight for a progressive agenda, that all people—women—look at that candidate who has the record to do that.”

The Case for Bernie Sanders


Sanders is a clear outlier in a generation that has forgotten what it means to be a public servant. The Times remarks upon his "grumpy demeanor." But Bernie is grumpy because he's thinking about vets who need surgeries, guest workers who've had their wages ripped off, kids without access to dentists or some other godforsaken problem that most of us normal people can care about for maybe a few minutes on a good day, but Bernie worries about more or less all the time.

Sanders Clearly Draws Out Significant  Differences with Clinton

MANCHESTER, N.H. — During a visit to a senior center here Friday, presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders highlighted his support for expanding Social Security benefits, an issue on which he asserted he has a “strong disagreement” with Democratic front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton.

It was the third time in as many days that the Vermont senator has sought to draw attention to a policy difference with Clinton, reflecting a recent shift to a more aggressive strategy as he seeks the Democratic nomination.

Sanders would pay for his Social Security plan — which calls for both extending the life of the program and providing more generous benefits — by expanding the share of workers' wages that is subject to payroll taxes. Under current law, only the first $118,500 in earnings are taxed. Washington Post, ABC News, Union Leader Interview Video
