Sanders Campaign Releases Spike Lee Produced Ad
Acclaimed director Spike Lee is a Bernie Sanders supporter, and he’s lent his talents to a new ad aimed at targeting minority voters, a demographic Sanders has suffered with this election.
The ad opens with civil rights activist and beloved singer Harry Belafonte. “People of color have a deeply vested interest in what Bernie Sanders brings to us in this election,” he says.
The ad also features Erica Garner, daughter of Eric Garner, and Shaun King an activist and New York columnist.
The Hill reports:
Linda Sarsour, executive director of the Arab American Association of New York adds: “Bernie Sanders sees all of me. He sees all of you. He sees us a whole people, as a whole country. That’s why I’m voting for Bernie Sanders.”
Director Spike Lee has been a strong supporter of Sanders, who has struggled against Clinton’s overwhelming support from black voters.
