A breakfast in Harlem underscores key challenge for White House hopeful Sanders

Democratic U.S. presidential candidate Bernie Sanders speaks after winning at his 2016 New Hampshire presidential primary night rally in ConcordBy John Whitesides MANCHESTER, N.H. (Reuters) – Bernie Sanders was due to have breakfast with one of America’s most prominent civil rights activists, Al Sharpton, just hours after trouncing Hillary Clinton in the New Hampshire Democratic presidential nominating contest. The meeting marks a recognition by Sanders that his campaign must swiftly broaden its base of support if he has any chance of mounting a long-term challenge to Clinton, who consistently polls better among African American voters. Sanders will meet with Sharpton in the same Harlem restaurant where the activist met with Barack Obama during his 2008 presidential campaign – an obvious bit of symbolism for the Vermont senator trying to connect with minority voters.
