ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Republican presidential candidate Senator Rand Paul cast doubt on Sunday (April 12) that Hillary Clinton would necessarily appeal to women voters, based on recent questions about foreign contributions to a charity established by her and former President Bill Clinton. "She's taken money from countries that abuse the rights of women. In Saudi Arabia, a woman was raped by seven men. The woman was then publicly whipped and then she was arrested for being in the car with an unmarried man. I think we should be boycotting that activity, not encouraging it," he told CBS's Face the Nation. "[Clinton] accepted money from Brunei also where they stone women to death for adultery," Paul added. "It's going to be hard for her to say she's for women's rights when she's accepting money from stone age sort of regimes that really abuse the rights of women." Clinton is expected to officially open her campaign later on Sunday as her party's prohibitive front runner in the 2016 election race.
