Jim Clyburn Endorses Hillary Clinton — In A Room Full Of Bernie Supporters

OMG even at HBCUs they are Feeling the Bern

Many of the students in the room told BuzzFeed News that they are, in fact, supporting Bernie Sanders.

“The consensus here is that Bernie is for the people,” said Joyce Haynes, a senior at Allen University who sang the national anthem for Sanders at a recent rally. “Like, literally for the people. Not just playing politics. And that’s what I like about him.”
Sanders has, for one thing, visited the campus. (Clinton has not, though her husband has.) His education platform (free public college) is popular. The argument, several students noted, that Clinton is more qualified doesn’t do much for them.
And then there is the national reality in polling that younger Democratic voters, especially those voting in their first election, are overwhelmingly with him.

Black caucus PAC shuns endorsement of Donna Edwards

The endorsement is unlikely to be voted on again, multiple members of the PAC’s board said.
Passing on an endorsement for a fellow black caucus lawmaker in a competitive primary is unusual for the CBC PAC. Sources said the PAC felt uncomfortable giving Edwards a nod of support after hearing from local elected African-American officials in Maryland who support Van Hollen.
Sources said former Rep. Al Wynn — whom Edwards unseated in 2008 — noted her lack of endorsements among black officials in the state, making the case that the CBC PAC should not trump the opinion of local elected representatives.
“The room accepted this as reasonable,” said one Democratic lawmaker in attendance. “It is premature to weigh in when black leadership is heavily leaning toward Van Hollen.”
The sources said Edwards’ troubled relationship with many of her black caucus members was also a factor.
