About This Ad

Sponsor Type

Independence USA PAC's ad says "Toomey crossed party lines… to stop gun sales to suspects on the terror watch list." PolitiFact rates this claim as "Mostly False." The measure to stop gun sales never passed, and Toomey's own bill "failed to garner significant support from either side of the aisle." The amendment he voted for that had bipartisanship support was drafted by a Republican, not a Democrat.

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.
