Although Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders' California campaign will still center around large-scale campaign rallies over the next two weeks, the campaign has decided to go on the airwaves with a $1.5 million dollar buy.

The ad will start airing in Los Angeles tomorrow, Fresno and Sacramento.

The 30-second ad shows California farmworkers, scenes of Venice beach and college students contrasted with images of Wall Street.

In the ad, Sanders explains how California has "the power to choose a new direction for the Democratic party.”

California holds its primary on June 7.
