Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders slams rival Hillary Clinton's campaign financing as ''corrupt.'' Rough Cut (no reporter narration).
ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders made an appearance on CBS' Face the Nation Sunday, just before the New Hampshire Primary Tuesday. Sanders said during his interview with John Dickerson that the money Hillary Clinton used to finance her campaign was "corrupt." "It's a fact. When, in the last reporting period, her Super PAC received 25 million dollars, and 15 million of it came from Wall Street, what is the smear? That is the fact," Sanders said. Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders has erased Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's wide lead for the Democratic presidential nomination since the start of year, putting the two in a dead heat nationally, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll. Clinton leads Sanders 48 percent to 45 percent among Democratic voters, according to the poll of 512 Americans, conducted Feb. 2-5 following the Iowa caucus. The poll has a credibility interval of 5 percentage points. Democrats had been supporting Clinton by more than a 2-to-1 margin at the beginning of the year. Sanders has narrowed that lead considerably over the past several weeks.
