(SOUNDBITE) (English) DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE BERNIE SANDERS, SAYING: "It's easy for bullies like Sheriff Arpaio to pick on people who have no power, but if I'm elected president, the president of the United States does have the power. Watch out, Joe!" After losing all five primaries on Tuesday (March 15) to rival democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, Sanders said he would do better in upcoming contests in western states. Primary elections will be held Tuesday (March 22) in Arizona, Utah, Idaho, Alaska and American Samoa.
