Sen. Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign will start running its first television ad Tuesday, NBC News reported Sunday. The campaign says the ad buy is more than $2 million.
The minute-long spot is intended to introduce the Vermont senator to Democratic primary voters. It begins by telling viewers he's the "son of a Polish immigrant, who grew up in a Brooklyn tenement." The commercial then describes Sanders’ work in Congress and points out that his campaign is "funded by over a million contributions."
The ad will run in the first voting states, Iowa and New Hampshire, at first and then be taken to other states. According to the latest FEC report, the Sanders' campaign raised $26.2 million in the third quarter, and as of the middle of October, had $27.1 million in the bank.
