Clinton campaign resumes TV air time purchases

The Clinton Campaign’s message returns to the airwaves after a brief hiatus, according to the New York Times.

The campaign reportedly bought about $175,000 worth of television time in Kentucky, this week, the first purchases since Clinton primary wins in the Mid-Atlantic states on April 26.

Last week in his Indiana victory, Sanders spent $1,6 million in advertising, with Clinton spending zero.

On Monday, Sanders continued to stress that his campaign was in for the long haul, telling supporters at a rally in Atlantic City that he was going to “fight for every remaining vote in every remaining state.”

Clinton meanwhile is attempting to fight on two fronts in her advertising, taking on Sanders,  but also addressing Republican last-man-standing Donald Trump in TV ads.

Both the Clinton campaign and her super-PAC Priorities USA, released digital videos this past week attacking Trump for his comments and claiming to be a unifier.

Currently Sanders trails Clinton by 290 pledged delegates, 1,414-1,704, with 933 pledged candidates left up for grabs in 12 remaining primaries.

A candidate needs 2,383 delegates out of 4,765 (4,051 pledged 714 unpledged – or super delegates) to win the Democratic presidential nomination.

The Democratic National Convention will be conducted in Philadelphia in July.

For twenty years I've been reporting what my corporate overlords told me. Now I'm free to write for you, for me and for a better country for my children. After a lifetime of watching career politicians greedily consume everything within arms reach I have now seen change in the form of presidential candidate Bernie Sanders. His message resonates with me and I feel most Americans would embrace it if they knew more about him and his policies. That isn't going to happen through mainstream media. That's why independent media like The Bern Report was born. To get the world out, unfiltered by our corporate masters. Because we have none. I'm looking forward to this new journey and hope the country is ready and willing to embrace true change.
