ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) After Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders suffered a massive defeat in South Carolina on Saturday, he was off to Minnesota where he addressed supporters. Sanders criticised Republican candidates on economic issues and said the party had 'amnesia' when it came to the mess Obama was left with in 2008. "It's amazing to me that our Republican friends suffer from a very serious illness which seems to be all pervasive among Republicans and that is short term amnesia. How they could go forward with a straight face and talk about the problems we have today while ignoring what world Bush left us in when he left office?" he said. Sanders had spent most of the past week in states that will vote on "Super Tuesday" on March 1st. Although he's energized the party's liberal wing and brought young people to the polls with his message of attacking income inequality and reining in Wall Street, Sanders needs a breakthrough win in a key state in the next few weeks to keep his hopes alive.
