JACKSON, Miss. (WTVA) — Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden is spending his day in Mississippi looking for votes ahead of Tuesday's primary while surrogates for Bernie Sanders are doing the same while he campaigns in Michigan.
Biden's first appearance was at a black church in Jackson where he credited black voters for reviving his campaign.
The former vice president appeared to be on his way out of the race for the White House until a strong black vote gave him an overwhelming victory in South Carolina. That led to him winning a string of states and delegates on Super Tuesday.
Biden's other public appearance is a Sunday rally at Tougaloo College in Jackson with actress Vivica A. Fox.
As for Sanders, he sent actor Danny Glover to Jackson on Sunday for visits to multiple churches with the city's mayor. Glover is also expected to appear at an assisted living facility there Monday.
The U.S. senator from Vermont planned to campaign himself in Mississippi but decided to focus his efforts on Michigan, which is the biggest delegate prize among the six states with presidential contests on Tuesday.
