Rev. Jesse Jackson endorses Bernie Sanders

Civil rights activist and former Democratic presidential candidate Rev. Jesse Jackson endorsed Bernie Sanders on Sunday.

Why it matters: Jackson's endorsement is the kind of boost Sanders needs as he looks to slow the momentum of Joe Biden, whose surge in South Carolina and on Super Tuesday was driven largely by black voters.

What they're saying: In a statement Sunday, Jackson listed 13 reasons why he's supporting Sanders, including the senator's support for national voting rights, a civil rights commission, a wealth tax, funding for HBCUs, a two-state solution for Palestine and Israel and a single-payer health care system.

She has a really good radio show in Chicago. She has such a calming and soothing personality. She also discusses difficult issues in a direct and skillful manner.

4. Obama is more popular in the AA community than Rev. Jackson who has been AWOL lately

 

This will be a slight boost at best but not nearly what Sanders needs.
