El Toro

In the case of El Toro, we remain resilient in our ability to conduct digital advertising on behalf of all politicians.

We strictly target based on household level targeting with digital advertisements. Unlike other platforms, we’re not targeting people based on their generalized location or online-cookie profiles.

"In an environment where internet giants and lawmakers shirk their societal obligation by removing the voice of newcomers to the democratic process,” said El Toro co-founder David Stadler, “El Toro will remain vigilant in its approach to providing reach to potential voters in a law-abiding, ethical, and transparent manner."

El Toro has been and will remain a pillar for candidates looking for a dependable, honest way of advertising digitally in the 21st century.
