Campaigns Rush to Submit Facebook Ads Ahead of Limits

Republican and Democratic political advertisers are scrambling to submit their ads to Facebook Inc. before the end of Monday after the social network decided not to allow new political ads in the week leading up to Election Day.

Facebook’s move, which it announced last month as part of an effort to limit misinformation that could lead to civil unrest, is prompting campaigns to submit new ads for approval as soon as possible. Some are also looking for other platforms or social-media influencers to carry their messages.
