USA: Sanders celebrates Wyoming victory with Belafonte and Erica Garner

United States, New York
April 10, 2016 at 20:35 GMT +00:00 · Published

Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders announced his victory of the Wyoming Democratic Party primary to supporters during a campaign rally at a packed Apollo Theater in Harlem, New York on Saturday.

Harlem native and famous actor and singer Harry Belafonte shared the stage with Sanders, and said of him "to have lived long enough to see Bernie Sanders step into the fray and to put some skin in the game has kinda reawakened my youthful spirit."

Black Lives Matter activist Erica Garner, the daughter of Eric Garner who was choked to death by NYPD during an arrest for selling cigarettes without a permit, said of Sanders that "Bernie started out with nothing. With really low numbers. And because of us he is going to be our president. So we need to vote, scream, shout, because this is our time. I hear a political revolution coming."

The New York Democratic primary is scheduled for April 19 with 291 delegates at stake. Polls currently put Democratic presidential rival Hillary Clinton ahead of Sanders with about 54 percent of the vote, against Sanders' projected 43 percent.
