It's retail politics in a diner for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, Thursday. She's on the ground in Nevada -- which holds Democratic causes this Saturday. Earlier this month, her status as the Democratic front-runner was jolted -- first when the former secretary of state only beat rival Bernie Sanders by less than a percentage point in Iowa, and later when she lost to him by more than 20 points in New Hampshire. She is now in a dead heat -- according to the latest Reuters/Ipos poll. In Nevada, she's on the ground seeking out support one voter at a time -- or at least one selfie at a time. Meanwhile, rival -- Senator Bernie Sanders is in Washington D.C. -- meeting with African American leaders -- delivering a message on economics. (SOUNDBITE) (English) SEN. BERNIE SANDERS, DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE, SAYING: "We understand that, since the Wall Street crash of 2007/2008, millions of people have lost their jobs and life savings - their homes. I understand that the African American community has been harder hit than any other community in America." The next Democratic primary will be held in South Carolina February 27th.
