WASHINGTON – The Judicial Crisis Network today released a new ad in West Virginia accompanied by polling research focused on red-state Democrats in West Virginia, North Dakota, Indiana, and Alabama. JCN’s latest ad highlights Judge Kavanaugh’s qualifications, fairness, independence, and adherence to the Constitution. It also calls on Senator Manchin to stand with his constituents and not with Senator Chuck Schumer and radical liberals.
Accompanying the ad is fresh polling from North Star Opinion Research (Whit Ayres) that shows a majority of voters in West Virginia (as well as Indiana, North Dakota, and Alabama) support confirming Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. The polling also shows that Independents in West Virginia solidly support Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation.
This is a $1.5 million buy throughout West Virginia, North Dakota, Indiana, and Alabama. Since the president nominated Judge Kavanaugh July 9, 2018, JCN has spent $4.5 million on ads with more than $2 million allocated specifically to West Virginia, North Dakota, Indiana, and Alabama. JCN’s ad buy total in West Virginia alone amounts to almost $500,000 to date.
Statement from Judicial Crisis Network’s Chief Counsel and Policy Director, Carrie Severino:
“Judge Kavanaugh is a fair and independent judge who bases his decisions on the Constitution, which is why President Trump nominated him and why a lopsided majority of West Virginians support his confirmation. Senator Manchin has a choice: Stand with the people of West Virginia and support President Trump’s extraordinarily qualified Supreme Court nominee, or stand with Chuck Schumer and be a rubber stamp for the extreme liberal special interests.”
