After the win in Nevada, Sanders said, “In Nevada, we have just put together a multigenerational, multiracial coalition which is going to not only win in Nevada, it’s going to sweep this country. No campaign has a grassroots movement like we do, which is another reason why we’re going to win this election. Trump and his friends think they are going to win this election. They think they’re going to win this election by dividing our people up based on the color of their skin or where they were born or their religion or their sexual orientation”.
The next Democratic Primary is in South Carolina and that occurs on February 29th.
