It's Not Over, Bernie Sanders, Eric Garners daughter's video

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders released an online video Thursday featuring the daughter of Eric Garner, a 43-year-old unarmed father of six who was killed in a chokehold by New York City police officers in 2014.

The video is an example of attempts by the Democratic presidential candidate to reach out to black voters as the race heads to South Carolina and Nevada, where there are large populations of blacks and Latinos. In South Carolina, black voters make up more than 60% of the primary electorate.

“I’m behind anyone who’s going to listen and speak up for us, and I think we need to believe in a leader like Bernie Sanders,” Erica Garner says in the video. “There’s no other person that’s speaking about this. People are dying. This is real. This is not TV. We need a president that’s going to talk about it.”


"I think we need to believe in a leader like Bernie Sanders. People are dying. This is real. We need a president that will talk about it. Bernie is a protester. He's not scared to go up against the criminal justice system. He is not scared." - Erica Garner

Jane Sanders: Albright's Comments 'Unfortunate And Disturbing' (VIDEO)

Jane Sanders, the wife of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), on Wednesday said she found former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright's comments urging female voters to support Hillary Clinton "disturbing."

Albright over the weekend told young women that it was important for them to support Clinton's presidential bid as feminists, saying, "There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help each other!"

"I found them unfortunate and disturbing," Jane Sanders told HuffPost Live about Albright's comments. "I think that women today are a little bit more intelligent to say — to not say, 'Okay, all I care about is gender.' By that case, then, if Bernie won the Democratic nomination and Carly Fiorina won the Republican nomination, we should be supporting Carly Fiorina."

"She apologized.(Steinem) I know that young people were offended by it, but it was a mistake," Jane Sanders said on Wednesday. "That's what I don't like about politics too much, that somebody makes a misstatement. We know her life has been about equity for women and feminism. She made a mistake, she said so. I absolutely still respect her very much."

Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders pays his campaign interns, but most


Pay Fail
Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders pays his campaign interns, but most (if not all) of the other major presidential candidates do not.

CLAIM: Bernie Sanders is one of the few 2016 presidential candidates (if not the only one) to pay his campaign interns.


First, the candidates offering unpaid internships are not breaking any laws. In most cases, it is perfectly legal to hire interns for non-paying positions as long as those interns receive some tangible benefit (such as school credit or valuable work experience) in return. Second, some candidates, such as Republican Ben Carson, do offer their interns others forms of compensation, such as stipends for food or travel. And neither we nor the Washington Post have unable to determine if GOP candidate Donald Trump's campaigns offers internships (or, if so, whether those internships are paid positions), although we note that interns at Trump Entertainment Resorts are reportedly paid $10 an hour.

The campaign teams of Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Hillary Clinton and Chris Christie have all recently posted advertisements seeking interns for non-paying positions. A recent posting on Bernie Sanders' web site, on the other hand, advertises a paid internship position (although such ads do not necessarily indicate that all campaign internship positions are paying ones):

Big win for Sanders in New Hampshire

Bernie Sanders has won the Democratic presidential primary in New Hampshire.

CBS News, CNN and The Associated Press called the race at about 8 p.m., just after the polls closed.

At about 9:30 p.m., Sanders declared victory in a speech before an elated crowd of supporters at his watch party in Concord.

"Thank you, New Hampshire!" Sanders said to cheers. "Together we have sent a message that will echo from Wall Street to Washington, from Maine to California. And that is that the government of our country belongs to all of the people, and not just a handful of wealthy campaign contributors and their super PACs."

Bernie Sanders Wins Every Demographic Group

Senator Bernie Sanders beat Hillary Clinton among nearly every demographic group in the Democratic New Hampshire primary, according to exit polls.

He carried majorities of both men and women. He won among those with and without college degrees. He won among gun owners and non-gun owners. He beat Mrs. Clinton among previous primary voters and those participating for the first time. And he ran ahead among both moderates and liberals.

Even so, there were a few silver linings for Mrs. Clinton. While Mr. Sanders bested her among all age groups younger than 45, the two candidates polled evenly among voters aged 45 to 64. And Mrs. Clinton won the support of voters 65 and older. And, though Mrs. Clinton lost nearly every income group, she did carry voters in families earning over $200,000 per year.
