ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Story: Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton hailed what she called "California values" during a campaign stop in Los Angeles on Saturday (April 16). The former Secretary of State said she would work to enact the state's generous family leave policies in the rest of the country if elected president. California currently requires that employees receive partial pay for up to six weeks of family leave. Clinton's comments were a jab at Republican rival Sen. Ted Cruz, who disparaged what he called, "New York values" earlier this year. Clinton is a former senator from New York. The rally comes as Clinton is working to stave off a challenge from Sen. Bernie Sanders for the Democratic nomination for president. Clinton is rallying supporters in California, where the primary is set for June 7. Clinton is the front-runner in the Democratic race, but holds only a modest lead over Sanders in California.
