Prime Malcolm Turnbull has blamed in part the federal government’s by-election losses on the large amount of advertising conducted by Labor, with some of the funds for its advertising coming from the union movement. Turnbull claimed on 29 July that Labor had engaged in "outrageous lies" over health funding. It is estimated Labor spent $A450,000 on television and radio advertising in south-east Queensland in the last week before the Longman by-election, which it appears to have won. By way of contrast, the Liberal party did not run any television commercials in south-east Queensland over the same period.
