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.”

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.

The senator from Vermont would need to capture large numbers of Latino and African American votes to best Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton in Nevada’s Feb. 20 caucus.

“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.
