ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Democratic Presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders took aim at Republican rivals saying if you look at their plans, "it is hard to imagine anybody voting for that agenda." Sanders said that he and rival Hillary Clinton agree, "That we must not have a Republican in the White House." Sanders underscored Republican positions on taxes, entitlements and women's rights. "In a country in which 47 million people are living in poverty, billionaires like Donald Trump, do not need tax breaks," he said. "All over this country you see Republicans talking about 'Family Values,'" Sanders said. "What their family values mean is that no woman here in Oregon, in America should have the right to control her own body," he said. On Wednesday the New York Times reported that Sanders is planning to lay off hundreds of campaign workers nationwide and focus on winning in California. Sanders, a U.S. senator from Vermont, told the Times in an interview he planned to remain in the race despite losing four of five states in primary voting on Tuesday, putting him further behind rival Hillary Clinton. Hillary Clinton, won four of Tuesday's five contests, building a virtually insurmountable lead over Sanders.
