ROMULUS, Mich. (AP) -

Jane Sanders is playing a central role in her husband's surging presidential campaign.

Momentum is on Bernie Sanders' side after his 22-point win in the New Hampshire primary and a close finish in Iowa. His campaign, fueled by promises of "political revolution" and small dollar donations, has proven a surprisingly robust challenge to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Along the way, Jane Sanders has done everything from buying the office furniture to prepping for debates. She has tried to lighten up her policy wonk husband, urging him to offer a "little less doom and gloom and a little more hope" in his speeches. She has also encouraged the Vermont senator to talk more about his congressional record.

According to Bernie Sanders, Jane is: "not afraid to be constructively critical."
