ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: U.S. Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders attended Sunday service at Mount Carmel Baptist Church in Waterloo, Iowa (December 13), telling the congregation his position on a range of issues from income inequality to healthcare and mandatory maternity leave. The Vermont senator is considered the main rival to frontrunner Hillary Clinton for the party's presidential nomination for the November 2016 election, and his positions have pressured the former secretary of state to move more to the left on environmental and other issues. Sanders is trying to beat Clinton by building grassroots support in the states that hold the first nominating contests ahead of the general election in November 2016. He has been making a pitch to connect with the black voters including those that provide most of the Democratic support in early primary state of South Carolina.
