ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders says the long lines people had to wait in to vote in the Arizona primaries is a "disgrace." Sanders lost to Clinton by a wide margin in Arizona but won the Utah and Idaho presidential nominating contests. There were long lines for voters throughout Arizona, with some polling stations staying open until after midnight to accommodate the crowds. At a press conference in San Diego, California on Wednesday, Sanders said his campaign had received an e-mail from a woman who had to wait five hours to vote. Sanders said the lines raised the possibility that thousands of people who wanted to vote were not given the chance. In the Phoenix area, voters blamed the long wait on a decision to reduce the number of polling stations by nearly two thirds.
