Friends of the Earth Action launches Sanders 2016 TV ads in Iowa & NH

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Friends of the Earth Action released a television ad today promoting Sen. Bernie Sanders. Entitled, “A bold and fearless voice,” the ads will run in Iowa and New Hampshire ahead of each state’s democratic primary, and will highlight Sanders’ strong records on the environment and unjust trade deals. Friends of the Earth Action, the political arm of Friends of the Earth, was the first national organizational to endorse Sanders for president.

“It’s time for environmentalists to rally around Senator Sanders,” said Friends of the Earth Action President Erich Pica. “As we battle climate change, only one candidate in the race has consistently lead. Whether fighting the Keystone XL pipeline and the climate destroying Trans Pacific Partnership, or offering solutions that promote renewable energy, keeping fossil fuels in the ground and providing justice-focused solutions to climate change, Bernie Sanders is leading.”

While the ad will air exclusively in New Hampshire and Iowa, the 30-second spot can be viewed here.
