JCN Launches Multimillion-Dollar Initial Ad Blitz to Fill Supreme Court Seat
Phase One of a Grassroots Mobilization Effort
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Judicial Crisis Network today announced a multimillion-dollar, grassroots mobilization campaign in support of President Trump and Leader McConnell’s effort to fill the Supreme Court vacancy resulting from the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg. The initial $2.2 million-dollar ad blitz is phase one of an all-out effort to support President Trump’s soon to be announced nominee to fill the vacancy.
The phase one ad, “Follow Precedent,” will appear both on TV and digital and will air nationally on cable and in key states including: Colorado, Iowa, Maine, North Carolina, Utah, and Washington D.C.
Judicial Crisis Network President Carrie Severino:
“President Trump will soon pick a strong nominee, and the Senate should act quickly to confirm her. Justice Ginsburg was confirmed in 42 days. Justice O’Connor in 33. They both received overwhelming bipartisan support. There is no reason Judge Amy Coney Barrett or Judge Barbara Lagoa could not be confirmed before the election. In fact, 8 out of 10 nominations made during an election year have been confirmed when the Senate and the White House are held by the same party. Why won’t Democrats support Barrett or Lagoa, like they did O’Connor and Ginsburg? Because the Democrats are extremists, which is why they are already threatening to pack the Court and destroy the Senate if a nominee is confirmed. The Senate should ignore the extremists, stick to precedent, and confirm the nominee.”
JCN played a major role in previous Supreme Court battles, and ran multimillion-dollar campaigns to support the successful confirmations of Justices Gorsuch and Kavanaugh
You’ll hear noise from extremists about the Supreme Court vacancy.
Here are the facts: Justice Ginsburg was confirmed in forty-two days.
Only three Senators voted against her.
Justice O’Connor was confirmed in thirty-three days.
It was unanimous.
In eight out of ten vacancies like this, the nominee was confirmed.
Democrats are shamefully trying to change the facts.
Tell the Senate, when the President announces another strong nominee.
Follow precedent. Confirm the Judge.
