[Watch] Eric Garner’s Daughter Endorses Bernie Sanders in Emotional Campaign Ad

The ad gets to the heart of the “I Can’t Breathe” rallying cry.

Published April 6, 2016

“I got to see my dad die on national TV.”

Erica Garner recalled the tragic death of her father Eric Garner at the hands of a police officer that choked him as he pleaded “I can’t breathe” in a 30-second recut version of a Bernie Sanders ad that was first released in January.

The ad includes images of a 21-year-old Sanders, who was a student at the University of Chicago at the time, being cuffed and arrested during a protest for civil rights in 1963.

“People are dying,” Erica added. “We need a president that’s gonna talk about it.”
