WASHINGTON – The Judicial Crisis Network today released a new ad in North Dakota accompanied by polling research focused on red-state Democrats in North Dakota, West Virginia, Indiana, and Alabama. JCN’s latest ad highlights Judge Kavanaugh’s qualifications, fairness, independence, and adherence to the Constitution. It also calls on Senator Heitkamp to stand with her constituents and not with radical liberals.
Accompanying the ad is fresh polling from North Star Opinion Research (Whit Ayres) that shows a majority of voters in North Dakota (as well as West Virginia, Indiana, and Alabama) support confirming Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. The polling also shows that Independents in North Dakota solidly support Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation.
This is a $1.5 million buy throughout North Dakota, West Virginia, 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 North Dakota, West Virginia, Indiana, and Alabama. JCN’s ad buy total in North Dakota alone amounts to nearly $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 North Dakotans support his confirmation. Senator Heitkamp has a choice: Stand with the people of North Dakota 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.”
