About This Ad
The Political TV Ad Archive, powered by the Internet Archive, is pulling together resources from a variety of sources to create an archive of political TV ads in key primary states. Each ad has its own canonical web page (sample here), and associated downloadable metadata. Some metadata are added by the Internet Archive; some generated via the media itself (such as count of ads, how many times an ad has aired, etc.); and some come from our partners.
Conservative group attacks Arizona GOP candidate for calling Hillary Clinton ‘effective’
Club for Growth said, "Jones called Hillary Clinton ‘a capable and respected leader,’ and an ‘effective’ secretary of state ... Hillary Clinton effective? Christine Jones thinks so."
In three separate blog posts dating back to January 2012, Jones does characterize Clinton as capable, respected and effective.
What the ad does not mention is how Jones started walking back her remarks in 2014. By saying "Christine Jones thinks so," in present tense, Club for Growth neglects to account for her more recent perspective.
