The Associated Press reports that Jacqueline Jackson – the wife of Rev. Jesse Jackson – is backing Hillary Clinton in a new radio ad being aired in the state. Her husband is supporting Barack Obama.
"Hillary believes that the way we treat our children reflects our nation's values," Jacqueline Jackson says in the spot. "For 35 years, Hillary has fought for families."
As the AP notes, the black vote is key in South Carolina, where voting takes place on Jan 26. In the last presidential election blacks made up almost half the Democratic vote.
