ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton spoke at a church in Durham, North Carolina on Sunday (October 23). "If we're honest with each other, we know we face the continuing challenge of systemic racism. We know we face the continuing discrimination against African Americans and in particular, young African American men and women," said Clinton. Clinton's speech followed remarks by a group of women who lost their children in a series of police shootings. Geneva Reed-Veal spoke on the importance of voting in this election. Reed-Veal is the mother of Sandra Bland, the black woman found hanging dead in a Texas jail days after a traffic stop last year. Bland's traffic stop and subsequent death have been taken up by activists who say the case is the latest example of racial bias and excessive force by U.S. law enforcement. "We have to choose hope over fear or there is no future for any of us," said Clinton. The latest Reuters/Ipsos poll released on Friday has Trump trailing Clinton by 4 percentage point. The latest Reuters/Ipsos States of the Nation project found Clinton with a 95 percent chance of winning the needed 270 Electoral College votes.
