National, state and local representatives were on hand for Monday’s kickoff event for the group African Americans for Hillary, an advocacy organization looking to mobilize the Hoosier State’s black voters. Experts say the campaign’s efforts to reach that particular demographic could prove crucial for the candidate’s success in the Hoosier state.

The Hilary Clinton campaign today trumpeted support from more than 50 African American leaders, from U.S. Representative Andre Carson to a constable in Indianapolis' Center Township.

The next Democratic presidential nominee could be the oldest in the party’s history. Democrats have only nominated one non-incumbent over 60 since 1880, but frontrunner Hillary Clinton turns 68 this year  and Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) turns 74 in September. 

Both candidates would set the record for the party’s oldest nominee, and Sanders would be the oldest first-term nominee in U.S. history.
