Several South Carolina television stations are pulling an anti-Rubio ad that by a Cruz PAC that focuses on Marco’s support for amnesty.
The stations said they pulled the ads amid legal concerns.
Here’s the ad titled, “Sanctuary.”
Evidently, the Rubio campaign does not want the truth out before Saturday’s election.
Some South Carolina television stations are pulling a negative television advertisement from a group supporting Ted Cruz because of the claims it makes against Marco Rubio.
A spot from Stand for Truth Inc., a shadowy super PAC formed just a few months ago, had spent $125,000 to air the spot titled “Sanctuary” on Iowa television and on digital platforms, according to advertising tracker CMAG/Kantar Media. The group has not shared much information about its advertising plans, and is using a high number of companies to receive and direct donations. The group had begun to air the ads in South Carolina before the legal team for one media company, Media General, determined it had to be pulled.
The decision by television stations was first reported by The New York Times.
It is not uncommon for campaigns to try and litigate the fairness of attack advertisements with television stations, though the advertiser usually does not order a spot to be removed from the airwaves. And there is no evidence that other South Carolina television representatives find the ad similarly objectionable.
