“Campaigns had a very hard deadline,” said Eric Wilson, a Republican digital strategist.
Tech for Campaigns, a nonprofit that works with left-leaning down-ballot campaigns, said it’s currently running ads for more than 50 campaigns. It submitted all Facebook ads early to ensure they had time to appeal any that were rejected by the social network.
“We actually submitted all of our creative a week ago,” said Jessica Alter, the co-founder of Tech for Campaigns. “We’ve been ready for a while.”
Alter said many of their campaigns had their ads erroneously turned off on Tuesday.
