Latinos for Bernie Nevada organised a friendly football match in Las Vegas on Monday, to rally Hispanics to vote for the Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders ahead of Nevada caucuses. Footage shows members of the local Latino community posing for a group photo, ahead of the friendly clash on a neighbourhood football pitch. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, who is endorsing Sanders for president and campaigning for him in Nevada, joined the event. "This is a moment we can actually change our lives. We can change the lives of our families and our communities because we have a candidate in Bernie," he said as he met members of the community. Early voting kicked off in Nevada on Saturday, ahead of the state's caucus scheduled for February 22. Sanders claimed a big victory with Latino voters in Iowa and New Hampshire and now faces another test in the western state, where almost a third of the population are Hispanics.
