About This Ad

When it comes to defeating radical Islamic terrorism, the Midlands knows victory starts here. More than 50% of all U.S. Army soldiers get there start at Fort Jackson. But President Obama is decimating our military, threatening 3,000 jobs at Fort Jackson. That's wrong. Ted Cruz will protect Fort Jackson jobs as President. To help keep America safe. Ted Cruz. Rebuild our military. Kill the terrorists. I'm Ted Cruz and I approved this message.

In this hyper-localized ad, the narrator tells a South Carolina audience that Cruz will protect jobs in Fort Jackson, a local army base, drawing a contrast with President Barack Obama, whom is accused of "threatening 3,000 jobs at Fort Jackson"--a claim that fact checkers say does not hold up to muster.

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.
