Sanders’ Super Tuesday focus evident in travel outside South


ORANGEBURG, S.C. (AP) — Bernie Sanders was back in South Carolina on Friday, but not for long.

As Hillary Clinton barnstormed across the state this week, Sanders was on a tour of middle America. He popped back for a few events in the hours before polls open Saturday in the state’s Democratic presidential primary. He will be on his way to end his day in Minnesota — out of the state and out of the South — by the time they close.

Sander has spent months of trying to introduce himself to voters who have known Clinton for decades, African-Americans in particular.

He’s in search of friendlier terrain for Super Tuesday, looking for wins outside the South on the day next week when 11 states hold Democratic contests.
