The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is spending $2 million on his first television ad campaign in Iowa and New Hampshire, casting himself as a longtime fighter against injustice and inequality.

The ad traces Sanders' humble upbringing in Brooklyn, New York, and notes that he attended Dr. Martin Luther King's March on Washington in 1963.

It tells viewers about his work as the mayor of a Vermont city and in Congress and says he's now "taking on Wall Street and a corrupt political system."

It points to the 1 million contributors to his campaign and shows footage of his large rallies around the nation.

It's his first ad of his campaign to challenge front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination.
