Sen. Bernard Sanders’ presidential campaign released an ad touting the Brooklyn native’s “values forged in New York” ahead of the April 19 primary in the Empire State.

“New York — what makes it think bigger? Go bolder?” a narrator says in the 30-second ad. “You do.”

The ad highlights Mr. Sanders’ support for issues such as increasing the minimum wage and tuition-free public college.

“Values forged in New York,” the narrator goes on to say of Mr. Sanders. “Brooklyn-born. Native son who knows what we know: We’re all in this together.”

Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz of Texas has taken some criticism for his line during one of the debates deriding presidential front-runner Donald Trump for embodying “New York values.” Mr. Cruz has said recently that the remark applies to Democratic politicians in the state.
