ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders said on Friday (May 13) that he's received 7.5 million individual campaign contributions so far. "It has shown you can run a winning national campaign without being dependent on Wall Street and the big money interests," he told a rally in Fargo, North Dakota. "I'm proud of that." Sanders, a senator from Vermont, has vowed to stay in the race despite trailing his rival, Hillary Clinton. They will compete in the next primary contest on May 17 in Kentucky. Both candidates are also looking ahead to the June 7 contests, the last in the long nominating season, in which nearly 700 delegates are at stake, including 475 in California, where Sanders is now focusing his efforts.
