Bernie Sanders - MESKWAKI NATION TOWN MEETING




"Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton eked out a narrow win in the caucuses in Iowa on Monday night but Indian voters on one reservation showed a lot more support to rival Bernie Sanders.
According to the results from the Democratic party, the Senator from Vermont won a whopping 83.3 percent of the vote at the Indian Settlement precinct in Tama County. Members of the Meskwaki Tribe caucused at their tribal center and only gave 16.7 percent of their votes to Clinton, a former Secretary of State and a former Senator from New York.
Both campaigns reached out to voters on the reservation but Sanders was the only one who went there in person. He discussed the economy, education, Native veterans and other issues at the tribal center on September 4, 2015."
