Hillary Clinton courts Florida's black ministers



We hear Hillary Clinton held a conference call yesterday with African-American ministers and pastors from across Florida, encouraging them to mobilize their congregations to participate in Tuesday's Florida primary and especially this weekend's Souls to Polls efforts.

Introduced by Bishop Victor Curry, pastor of Miami's New Birth Baptist Church and joined by former Labor Secretary Alexis Herman, U.S. Rep. Alcee Hastings, and former Hillary for America South Carolina Director Clay Middleton, Clinton spoke about her commitment to African-American communities and improving jobs, education and housing.
