ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders addressed some of the worst problems facing Native Americans during a campaign stop at a reservation in South Dakota on Thursday (May 12). Sanders called for programs to address high unemployment and drug abuse - both major problems on many reservations. But he received some of the biggest cheers from the crowds when he called for free tuition at public colleges. Sanders is campaigning in the wake of a victory in West Virginia's primary on Tuesday over rival Democrat Hillary Clinton. The loss slows Clinton's march to the nomination, but she is still heavily favored to become the Democratic candidate in the Nov. 8 election.
