U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders’ Nevada campaign on Friday welcomed the endorsement of the Clark County Black Caucus. Clark County is the biggest county in Nevada with over 2 million people, approximately 12 percent of whom are African-American.
The group noted Sen. Sanders’ lifelong commitment to civil rights, racial and social justice, ending mass incarceration and addressing economic inequality in the country.
“We are proud to endorse Bernie Sanders for president. He has the audacity to speak truth to power and fight for the needs of our community,” said Yvette Williams, Clark County Black Caucus chair. “He understands that when everyone is treated equally, this country thrives.”
