About This Ad


This ad claims "Rubio voted to slash school funding by billions of dollars and would eliminate the Department of Education." "Mostly True," reports PolitiFact Florida. Rubio and other Republicans voted for spending cuts, though these did not solely target education, and they didn't pass. While running for president, Rubio advocated eliminating the Education Department, but the ad omits that he would have moved worthwhile programs to other agencies.

About the Dataset

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.
