Two groups are launching ads to push Senators to support who President Donald Trump picks to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy, according to Politico and the groups’ YouTube Pages.
The Judicial Crisis Network, a conservative group, launched an ad campaign titled “#AnotherGreatJustice” on Wednesday, the same day Justice Kennedy announced his retirement.
“President Trump has proven that he wants the best of the best on the Supreme Court,” the ad says. “And with your help, America will get another star on the Supreme court.” The ad urges watchers to call their senators to support President Trump’s pick.
The Judicial Crisis Network spent a million dollars on buying space for the ad, according to a Wednesday Politico report.
One Nation, another conservative group, launched ads to run in Florida, Indiana, Missouri, Montana, North Dakota, West Virginia, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, Politico reported Thursday. (RELATED: These Leftists Want Democrats To Pack The Supreme Court Once Trump Is Gone)
“Our freedom hangs in the balance, but the far left will stop at nothing to block President Trump’s choice,” one of the Florida ads begins. “Tell Senator Bill Nelson, say no to the left, and put another great justice on the Supreme Court.”
Justice Kennedy announced his retirement from the Supreme Court on Wednesday, and Democrats are already discussing blocking any Trump nomination.
“When Justice Scalia died NINE months before an election, ALL Judiciary Committee Republicans agreed to take NO ACTION on ANY nominee. They said the American people deserve a voice in who will sit on the Supreme Court. If it was true then, it must be true now” Democratic California Sen. Dianne Feinstein tweeted Thursday.
