ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders courted the African-American vote on Wednesday after thrashing former secretary of state Hillary Clinton in the New Hampshire primary election and giving his anti-establishment campaign a major lift. Sanders, a self-described democratic socialist and U.S. senator from Vermont, met civil rights leader Rev. Al Sharpton for breakfast at a restaurant in New York City's Harlem neighborhood. It was an attempt to chip away at Clinton's strong support from African-American voters, who will be crucial at the next Democratic primary, in South Carolina on Feb. 27. The two men hugged when they met outside the restaurant. After the meeting, Sharpton spoke with reporters outside the restaurant. He says he is not ready to make an endorsement until after he meets with Hillary Clinton next Thursday.
