Sanders and Clinton called on his resignation during opening statements of a Democratic presidential debate taking place in Flint.
After Sanders’ statement where he said Snyder should resign, Clinton said, “I’ll start by saying Amen to that.”
Sanders had recently called on Snyder to step down before the debate, but Clinton did so for the first time Sunday night.
Corrosive pipes leaked lead into the homes of Flint residents for more than a year despite complaints by residents for dirty-looking and smelly water.
A member of the audience who was instrumental in drawing attention to the poisonous water asked the candidates if they would commit to clearing lead from more than 10 million lead water pipes through out the U.S.
Clinton said she would commit to do so and “go further.” She would clear lead from soil and paint through out the country.
