Bernie is finally putting out a new ad in the remaining states about how he almost always got along with Obama. He could and should have done well before the South Carolina Primary, but maybe he and his team determined that it wasn't really needed, but if that was the case, that was a miscalculation, it seems to me. In any event, it will do a lot of good with African-American voters plus Obama fans and centrist Democrats in general, in the future.
Sanders' campaign has released a new ad featuring Barack Obama, set to air in states with primaries in the coming weeks. The ad features audio and video of Obama praising Sanders, taken from various events where the former president praised Sanders' record as somebody who gets things done.
"Bernie is somebody who has the virtue of saying exactly what he believes," Obama says in the ad. "Great authenticity, great passion, and is fearless. Bernie served on the veterans' committee and got bills done. I think people are ready for a call to action. They want honest leadership who cares about them. They want somebody who's gonna fight for them. And they will find it in Bernie.
"That's right. Feel the Bern!"
Sanders' campaign said the ad, titled Feel the Bern, will go to air in nine states that vote on March 10 and 17, including Arizona, Michigan and Washington, as well as Obama's adopted home state of Illinois.
