Biden campaign blames Facebook for $500,000 in lost fundraising
Democratic nominee Joe Biden's campaign said Thursday it had lost out on more than $500,000 in potential campaign donations this week and blamed Facebook after issues with the social media's advertising systems had prevented the campaign from running some ads soliciting donations.

Facebook (FB) acknowledged Thursday evening that "technical flaws" had prevented some campaigns from running some ads this week.
"We find ourselves 5 days out from Election Day unable to trust that our ads will run properly, or if our opponents are being given an unfair, partisan advantage," Biden campaign's digital director Rob Flaherty said Thursday.
Facebook said the technical issues impacted both presidential campaigns. CNN has reached out to the Trump campaign for comment.
Both campaigns use Facebook ads to encourage and solicit campaign donations and both have spent tens of millions of dollars on the platform this year.
The Biden campaign has been critical of Facebook's role in this election, including its policy of allowing politicians to lie in political ads, which Democrats view as giving Trump an advantage.
Facebook said in its statement Thursday, "No ad was paused or rejected by a person, or because of any partisan consideration."
