PolitiFact Florida: Fact-checking the TV ad attacking Rick Santorum

18

January

Have you seen this ad airing on Florida television?

"Barack Obama knows four facts about Rick Santorum that you don’t," the ad states. "Santorum pushed for billions in wasteful pork, voting for the ‘Bridge to Nowhere,’ a teapot museum, even an indoor rain forest. Santorum voted to raise the debt limit five times, increasing spending and debt by $3 trillion. He even voted to let convicted felons vote. So, how will Rick Santorum beat Obama? Obama knows, he can't."

The ad comes from Restore our Future, a super PAC that supports former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.

PolitiFact Florida has fact-checked several of the ad’s claims; some of it is misleading. Read more on the facts behind the ad.
