On the Democratic side, following her commanding win in South Carolina, Hillary Clinton now leads Bernie Sanders in six of the 11 states voting today—Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia. On the campaign trail in Norfolk, Virginia, Clinton called for making America “whole” again.
Hillary Clinton: “I personally believe America is and always has been great. What we need to do together is make America whole again, where we are working together, we are focused on making progress together, where we talk about issues, not insults.”
Super Tuesday comes as the State Department has finished releasing emails from the private server Clinton used while she was secretary of state. Democratic Senator Sanders has an overwhelming lead over Clinton in his home state of Vermont. Speaking in Milton, Massachusetts, on the eve of Super Tuesday, Sanders drew attention to mass incarceration.
Sen. Bernie Sanders: “There is no rational reason why a black male baby born today has a one-in-four chance of ending up in jail. That’s a disgrace. And together, we are going to bring justice to a broken criminal justice system.”
