About This Ad

I'm Chris Van Hollen and I approve this message. An attack ad from the campaign for Donna Edwards. So untrue. So outrageous that President Obama said pull it down. The Obama White House called the ad on Chris Van Hollen and the NRA misleading. The Sun says Van Hollen and President Obama have the exact same position. The Post praised Van Hollen as a leading champion on gun safety and condemned the Edwards' ads that mislead voters. Donna Edwards. Will she say anything to win an election?

Van Hollen began running this ad attacking Donna Edwards, his opponent in the Maryland Democratic Senate primary, as a response to this super PAC ad accusing Van Hollen of working with the NRA to craft a loophole in a campaign finance law. Van Hollen's ad references the White House's request that the super PAC pull down the ad. The super PAC supporting Edwards is still running the ad; however, references to Obama have been removed in recent airings (such as this one).

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.
