Not only did Bernie Sanders win the New Hampshire primary last week, he also won the heart of a fan that goes by the name of Erica Garner. Sounds familiar? Well she is the daughter of Eric Garner, the man who was choked to death by police. Erica Garner has released a video that retells her fathers death and also shows the support she has for Sanders.
Garner loves the fact that Sanders stands up for what he believes in. She says,
“I believe Bernie Sanders is a protester…. He’s not scared to go up against the criminal-justice system.”
When Sanders first started out, he had a hard time pulling black supporters. Now he’s pulling them left and right . He makes it a priority to reach out to the community more and show his appreciation.
