About This Ad

Marco Rubio once said if you don't want to vote on things, don't run for the Senate. Really? Rubio talks up his national security experience, but did you know he skipped 18 defense votes, including one to arm the Kurds to fight ISIS. And what does Rubio say about skipping votes? In essence, not voting for it is a vote against it. So is not voting is voting against it, was Rubio voting against defense spending and fighting ISIS? Marco Rubio. Absent on national defense. Keep the Promise I is responsible for the content of this advertising.

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.
