ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders sought to broaden his appeal to women and minorities as he campaigned in a suburb of Cleveland, Ohio on Thursday. Democratic voters in Ohio will go to the polls on March 15th. During a rally in suburban Cleveland, Ohio, Sanders denounced the disparaging comments Republican rival Donald Trump had made about Mexicans, calling the remarks, "an outrage which we will not accept." He also denounced Republican rhetoric about family values, telling the crowd, what they mean is that woman "should not have the right to control her own body. I disagree. What they mean is that our gay brothers and sisters should not have the right to get married. I disagree." Sanders also told the crowd that some national polls now show him leading Democratic rival Hillary Clinton. Sanders is trying to regain his footing after a 5-point loss to Clinton in Nevada. He's also trying to attract broader support as he prepares to face voters in South Carolina, where blacks make up more than half of the Democratic electorate, and on March 1 to a string of southern states with big blocs of African-Americans, who strongly support Clinton and have been slow to warm to Sanders.
