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.
John McCain ad claims some Arizonans may have no healthcare choice
McCain’s campaign ad said, "30,000 Arizonans may have no choice" for Affordable Care Act coverage.
The 30,000 number is just a snapshot of how many people have bought coverage through the exchange in those eight Arizona counties. That could change, plus it's based on months old data.

We rate the ad’s claim as Mostly True.READ MORE
