S.C.'s Top Democrat Looks Ahead To The Primaries

South Carolina Congressman Jim Clyburn, the third-ranking Democrat in the House and only high-ranking elected Democrat in the state, is known as the “kingmaker” in politics.

As primary day nears for the “First in the South” Democrats, many are watching to see if Clyburn will make an endorsement of either Hillary Clinton or Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders for the presidency.

He speaks with Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson about the issues he’s most concerned about going into the 2016 South Carolina primaries.
