Bernie Sanders’ campaign on Tuesday launched the first major Nevada television advertising blitz of any presidential candidate so far this year.
“Bernie intends to run a full-fledged national campaign beginning in Iowa and New Hampshire and extending into later states across the nation,” said Sanders’ senior adviser Tad Devine.
“The campaign’s movement into Nevada with statewide television advertising is a demonstration of Bernie’s potential and strength with voters and our belief that his story and message of American’s rigged economy held in place by a corrupt system of campaign finance will resonate powerfully across the nation.”
The new ad buy in Nevada is a sign of strength for the Sanders campaign, who say it shows they are taking his campaign beyond just Iowa and New Hampshire.
The ad, titled “Real Change” shows Sanders’ history and record of achievement.
“Bernie’s campaign is the kind of strong, well-funded insurgent movement that can and will succeed, in large measure because it is powered by people, with more than 2 million contributions which continue to come in at an historic and unprecedented pace,” said Sanders’ campaign manager, Jeff Weaver.
“We look forward to expanding Bernie’s campaign on the ground and in the airwaves in many more states in the days and weeks ahead.”
