Published: January 1, 2000

Buying Time 2000 is the second in the Brennan Center’s series of reports on campaign advertising on television. Buying Time 2000 advances beyond an earlier study of the 1998 congressional elections by making use of a new database of soft money expenditures by the national and state party committees. The study reports on data compiled regarding 3,327 unique political ads that aired a total of 940,755 times in approximately 300 different races.
