“The Senate should ignore the extremists, stick to precedent, and confirm the nominee.”
Listen to this article
The Judicial Crisis Network (JCN) launched a $2.2 million ad campaign to support President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to fill Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s seat.
“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
JCN released the first ad titled “Follow Precedent” today.
Here is the text of the video:
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.
There is no doubt that both sides will use Ginsburg’s death as we close in on election day. Polls have shown SCOTUS is a top priority for voters.
The ad will go out on TV, digital, and “nationally on cable and in key states including: Colorado, Iowa, Maine, North Carolina, Utah, and Washington D.C.”
It is meant to put pressure on “vulnerable GOP incumbent Sens. Susan Collins, Cory Gardner and Thom Tillis.”
Collins already sided with the Democrats, saying the November winner should nominate the next justice.
Gardner said “the country needs to mourn late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg ‘before the politics begin.'”
Tillis said he will support “the well-qualified and conservative jurist President Trump will nominate.”
The Democrats immediately went after Trump when Ginsburg died, trying to use McConnell’s actions in 2016.
However, that was when President Barack Obama, a Democrat, was president while the Republicans held the Senate.DONATE
