ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is setting his sights on a Pennsylvania primary win, during a rally in Erie on Tuesday (April 19). Sanders is ratcheting up the rhetoric against his rival, Hillary Clinton. "We have now received, as I understand it, some 7 million individual campaign contributions," said Sanders. "Secretary Clinton has chosen another route. She has established a number of Super PAC's during the last reporting period. Her major Super PAC reported 25 million from special interest including 15 million dollars from Wall Street," he added. Sanders has questioned whether Clinton's campaign violated legal limits on donations by paying her staffers with funds from a joint fundraising effort by Clinton and the Democratic National Committee, or DNC. Sanders has long maintained that the DNC has favored Clinton over Sanders. The U.S. senator from Vermont is a democratic socialist who has run as an independent in his Senate campaigns. The Clinton campaign dismissed the charge, with chairman Robby Mook saying Sanders was making baseless accusations. Both the Democratic and Republican primaries in New York on Tuesday (April 19) are expected to be the state's most decisive in decades in the selection of the parties' candidates for November's general election.
