About This Ad

Bernie gets to the Senate and one of the first issues he took on was the Immokalee tomato workers. Tomato pickers were being exploited tremendously. He went and visited personally. Then he came back and convinced Ted Kennedy to hold some hearings, and it fundamentally changed the lives of those workers. He's not a politician of convenience. He understood that the powerless need a voice. That is Bernie. I'm Bernie Sanders and I approve this message.
