ROCK HILL, S.C.  — The three Democratic candidates for president have taken part in a televised forum in South Carolina broadcast by MSNBC.

Former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley touted his state's economic record and reduction in crime.

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders said his stances on civil rights and the economy should appeal to black voters in the South and elsewhere. Sanders also said he will make an appeal to white voters and ask them why they continue to vote against their own interests.

Front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton said she would be no more likely to initiate military action than President Barack Obama.
