COLUMBIA, S.C. — The searing issues of racism and poverty dominated the Democratic presidential campaigns Wednesday, as Sen. Bernard Sanders tried to drive a wedge between Hillary Clinton and black voters, who are poised to hand her another primary win in two days.

Mr. Sanders, who is losing black voters to Mrs. Clinton by a 3-1 margin, impugned her record championing minorities by linking her to welfare reforms that preceded a dramatic rise in poverty rates over the past two decades.

He said the 1996 welfare reform law that Mrs. Clinton supported as first lady helped cause the number of Americans living in extreme poverty to more than double from 636,000 then to 1.6 million today.
