Shaun King has the exclusive piece @NewYorkDailyNews about the stronghold of all Clinton Strongholds:
In two districts once believed to be Hillary Clinton strongholds, the state senators from Harlem and Queens — Bill Perkins and James Sanders Jr. — will endorse Bernie Sanders instead, the Daily News has learned exclusively. The endorsements of local politicians, who often have the best ground operations and better connections with actual voters, are highly coveted in a race like this.
Harlem, maybe above anywhere else, has been considered not only as a Hillary Clinton stronghold, but as a Clinton family stronghold. After his presidency, Harlem is where Bill Clinton opened up his first office and called his home base for years. Whether you see what happened next as revitalization or gentrification, his presence had a significant impact on Harlem.
Hillary Clinton’s greatest firewall in her bid to win the democratic nomination for President is her overwhelming brand recognition and support in the African-American community, but many progressive black and Latino leaders are beginning to lean toward Bernie as we inch closer to the first primaries in 2016.
Thank you Shaun King.
