Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is huddling with Al Sharpton as he looks to make inroads with African-American voters ahead of the South Carolina primary.
Sanders, fresh off a huge win over Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire on Tuesday, is focusing on the Palmetto State, where Clinton has consistently polled stronger among black voters.
The two leaders met at Sylvia’s, a famed soul food restaurant, in New York City’s Harlem on Wednesday morning.
Sharpton embraced Sanders outside the breakfast spot Wednesday before heading inside. They were joined by former NAACP president Ben Jealous, who endorsed Sanders last week, and posted a photo of the pair.
