ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Story: One week before Wisconsin holds its primary, Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders held a town hall meeting in Appleton, Wisconsin on Tuesday in hopes of keeping his momentum going. The U.S. senator from Vermont told the crowd that when he started his campaign he was trailing by double digits but is now ahead of Hillary Clinton in the latest national polls. "The reason I think we're doing so well is because we're telling the truth," he told the cheering supporters. Last weekend Sanders scored three resounding victories in the Washington, Alaska and Hawaii caucuses. He still faces a steep climb to overtake Clinton but the big victories in the West generated more momentum for his upstart campaign and could stave off calls from Democratic leaders that he should wrap up his bid in the name of party unity. Sanders has repeatedly said he is staying in the race until the convention, pointing to the big crowds at his rallies and the high turnout among young and first-time voters as proof of his viability.
