In Arizona, Sanders woos Native Americans


PHOENIX (AP) — Bernie Sanders ventured to the northern reaches of Arizona on Thursday night, far away from the southern metropolises that house most of the state's voters but onto the land of a key voting bloc in Tuesday's Democratic primary — Native Americans.

Sanders spoke before an overflow crowd of thousands at a casino owned by the Navajo Nation outside the college town of Flagstaff. Dignitaries from the tribe told the crowd that Sanders was the first presidential candidate to visit their land, and the Vermont Senator took the unusual step of altering his stump speech to talk widely about Native American concerns.
