Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders brought his campaign for the Democratic nomination for president to Flint today (Thu.).
An enthusiastic crowd packed church pews for the town hall meeting. Sanders said the Flint water crisis is a tragedy, but said the city’s not alone. He says cities across the country face a “collapse” of their infrastructure and if a city and the state can’t handle it, then the federal government needs to step in.
“It is my hope the American people will look at Flint and say never again can we allow a community to undergo this.”
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was in Flint on February 7th and her campaign highlights the Flint water crisis in a new TV ad. Both Democratic candidates will debate each other in Flint on March 6th just two days before Michigan’s presidential primary.
