ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) U.S. presidential candidate Hillary Clinton focused on women's issues and the economy in a speech at the Arkansas Democrats' Jefferson-Jackson Dinner 2015 in Little Rock. "I know that when I talk about this, some people are going to think 'there she goes again with the women's issues,'" Clinton said. "I am going to keep going. I believe it's so important for all of us... You know, paid leave, earned sick days, child care, these aren't women's issues, they're family issues, they're economic issues, they're American issues," she went on to say. "And yes, I'm going to keep fighting for equal pay for equal work." She is the favorite to win the Democratic nomination but faces a growing challenge from Bernie Sanders, a U.S. senator from Vermont and self-styled socialist who is drawing large crowds at campaign events.
