ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is criticizing Republican governors, accusing them of using tactics to try to suppress voter turnout. Speaking at a campaign rally in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, Sanders accused Governor Scott Walker and other Republican leaders of "working overtime" to find ways to make it harder for Americans to vote. "I say that if you are afraid of free, open and fair elections, get out of politics and get another job," Sanders said.

Sanders will compete against Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton in Wisconsin on Tuesday.
