In her quest to hold the mantle of presidency in The US, Hilary Clinton has added another feather to her wings with an endorsement from the nation’s first black attorney general
The announcement was made in a statement credited to the Associated Press by Clinton campaign team
Holder, served as President Barack Obama’s top law enforcement appointee for more than five years, he confirmed Clinton saying, “is the candidate that we need in the White House” to continue “the progress of President Obama.”
The former attorney general is expected to join the next campaign train of Clinton in South Carolina and complementing her to a state Democratic Party dinner Saturday and a Sunday debate sponsored by Congressional Black Caucus and NBC News
Black voters in support of Clinton
Holder’s cited a list of policies which Clinton has made that gives her an edge over Vermont Sen. Bernie including her support for gun laws, addressing police brutality, and several points which reverberate intensely among black voters
According to a preference poll, African-American voters favor Clinton by an extensive margin and they may possibly make up a majority of the Democratic electorate in South Carolina’s Feb. 27 primary and possibly in other Southern primaries that proceed in March.
Though there are indications that Clinton could lose in Iowa and New Hampshire but regained the upper hand in the nominating contest by winning in South Carolina and other Southern states
Sanders camp making money from Clinton’s attack
Recently, Hilary Clinton who has been mute on having a barrage on Bernie Sanders fired shot at him on the gun control policy accusing Sanders of being a supporter of the National Rifle Association. But the attack on Sanders camps seems to be a blessing.
Sanders’s campaign team said it is seeing a flow of contributions as a direct result of the new attention it is getting from the Democratic front-runner, with money coming in at a clip virtually four times the daily rate reported in the last quarter of 2015.
“As of now, we are at about $1.4 million raised since yesterday when the panic attacks by the Clinton campaign began,” Briggs said. “We’ve gotten 47,000 contributions. We’re projecting 60,000 donations. Even for our people-powered campaign, this is pretty darn impressive.”
