We helped execute some of the first ads of the 2016 campaign last week. These ads, run by EMILY’s List on Feministing, were promoting the potential Presidential candidacy of Hillary Clinton (or some other woman.)

Turns out some Tea Party groups are running ads too, albeit against a potential 2016 candidate.

(Shout if you’d like to help test drive the beta version of Pullquote.)
