Environmental group airs ads for Sanders

Friends of the Earth are airing television ads in support of Bernie Sanders in the early-voting states of Iowa and New Hampshire.

Environmental advocacy organization Friends of the Earth will begin airing ads to support presidential candidate Bernie Sanders next week.

The ad will feature Sanders’ positions on the Keystone XL pipeline and trade. It will begin running in Des Moines and Manchester on Tuesday.

“Bernie Sanders had the courage to stand up against the Keystone pipeline from day one. He introduced the bill to keep fossil fuels in the ground on federal land and he opposes unjust trade agreements that damage our planet,” the ad’s narrator says.

“It is why Friends of the Earth Action urges you to support Bernie Sanders for president.”
