CNN town hall: Clinton, Sanders make pitch to minority voters ahead of S.C. primary
(CNN) -- Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders confronted issues of race Tuesday at a CNN town hall four days ahead of the South Carolina Democratic primary in which African-American voters will play a crucial role. Sanders accused Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump and others of fomenting a "racist effort" to delegitimize President Barack Obama. Sanders portrayed the "birther" controversy that Trump pushed during Obama's first term as part of a Republican strategy to thwart his presidency, based on the mantra "obstruct, obstruct, obstruct."
