EXPLANATORY NOTE by OnTheIssues.org:

Starting well before each election, candidates produce and air politicial advertisements. Since Citizens United took effect, PACs have produced many campaign ads too.

In modern campaigns, ads might be on TV, but also might be via email, web video, Tweets, or other social media.

Political pundit publications, such as The Hill and Rollcall, analyze campaign advertisements as well as campaign events (although at OnTheIssues we ignore their relentless coverage of polls; since we consider them irrelevant to normal voters and relevant only to pundits!)

OnTheIssues.org reviews those ads and analyses for relevant issue content, including opponents' responses when available. Sometimes we transcribe the ads from video or audio; sometimes we include commentary; all the time, we urge paying attention to the opponent of each advertiser too, to get the full story!
