There is racism in the Republican base, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders said during Tuesday night’s CNN Democratic town hall in Columbia, South Carolina.

“There was an effort to delegitimize the president … do I think in some parts of that Republican base there’s racism involved? Absolutely,” he said.

“Nobody has asked for my birth certificate. Maybe it’s the color of my skin,” Sanders said, referring to the birther movement that questioned President Barack Obama’s natural-born status in the United States.
