Clinton, Sanders speak at Las Vegas church

LAS VEGAS (AP) -

Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are speaking from the pulpit as they campaign ahead of next weekend's Democratic caucuses in Nevada.

The former Secretary of State and the Vermont senator both spoke at Victory Missionary Baptist Church in Las Vegas on Sunday.

Before the African-American congregation, Sanders praised President Barack Obama. But he also noted the economic struggles in Nevada since the recession, saying "we have made great progress, but much more needs to be done."

Clinton was accompanied by Rep. John Lewis of Georgia, the civil rights icon.

With the Nevada caucuses and South Carolina primary looming, Clinton has been stressing her ties to the black community, touting endorsements like the one she's received from Lewis.
