    WASHINGTON — Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign said the Vermont senator received treatment at a walk-in clinic Friday for a minor injury while campaigning in South Carolina.

    Campaign spokesman Arianna Jones told reporters that Sanders cut his head on the edge of a glass shower door and then went to a walk-in clinic. Sanders received a half-dozen stitches and was given a ‘‘clean bill of health,’’ she added.

    Jones said Sanders is continuing with all scheduled events, including a breakfast with local clergy and a round table on health care while in South Carolina. Sanders will travel to Nevada ahead of his first rally in the early voting state since launching his presidential bid, which will be held Saturday.
