Sanders stuns with first television ad

Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has sent shockwaves through the political world, with a $2 million television ad campaign.

On Sunday, the Sanders campaign released its first television ad, which it plans to air as part of an ad buy in Iowa and New Hampshire, exceeding $2 million.

“Thousands of Americans have come out to see Bernie speak and we’ve seen a great response to his message,” campaign manager Jeff Weaver said. “This ad marks the next phase of this campaign. We’re bringing that message directly to the voters of Iowa and New Hampshire.”

The television ad, titled “Real Change,” provides a brief introduction to the Brooklyn native, and an overview of his career as a mayor, congressman and senator.
