Democratic candidates for president spent much of Tuesday morning in a battle to prove that the country deserves a true progressive champion – as opposed to an agenda that doesn’t reflect the concerns of most voters.

During stops at several swing states, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren highlighted their candidacies with ads highlighting their progressive bona fides.

Warren’s ad during the Michigan primary played on the theme of “we’re not the enemy” as she accused the Trump administration of waging a “war on women”.

The Sanders ads touted Sanders’ Medicare-for-all plan, which Warren reiterated in New Hampshire, while highlighting his call for free public college tuition.

In Iowa, Sanders highlighted the need for economic justice and, like his Senate colleague Elizabeth Warren, focused on his proposal for free public college tuition.

The ads don’t just showcase Sanders’ economic plan but also the fact that he’s a progressive Democrat, something that was noted by the former two-term congressman.

“I’ve been waiting for him to come around to the notion that we need to take on the corporate power structure,” Hochul told the Guardian. “He has done it. But he has done it in a very compelling way, and I have to say that it has always been a very compelling message.”

Hochul was referring to Sanders’ refusal to support the nomination of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

“I have said that I will support whoever the nominee is, and I won’t vote for her,” Sanders said in response to Clinton’s controversial remarks about women during a speech in 2013. “And I’ll tell you something, I know that I’m not alone in that view.”

But with his decision not to support the Clinton-nomination, Sanders is now “uncomfortable” with the idea of supporting a progressive nominee for president.

On Wednesday, the Vermont senator also used television appearances and social media to tout his liberal credentials. He has run television ads featuring Sanders speaking at length about how he would fight
