A television ad created by the pro-Cruz Stand for Truth PAC was pulled from stations in South Carolina for unclear reasons after a “legal review.”
The New York Times reported Monday:
“The ad, titled ‘Sanctuary,’ was a version of an ad the group ran in Iowa, criticizing Marco Rubio for his record on immigration. It used the December attacks on San Bernardino, Calif., to stoke fear of terrorists sneaking into the country illegally, and cited the immigration deal Mr. Rubio pushed for in Congress in 2013 as evidence he worked to ‘allow sanctuary cities.'”
Although the video below is titled “Sanctuary” and was found at the YouTube website for the Stand for Truth SuperPac, this version does not mention San Bernardino specifically.
The reason for pulling the ad was unclear:
“We had our legal folks review it, and it was decided that this needed to be pulled and substituted,” Randy Ingram, the general manager of WBTW in Myrtle Beach, S.C., said, although he couldn’t recall the specifics of the legal team’s decision.”
unlikely a bit bizarre that the interviewee had no idea why the ad was pulled.
