The Judicial Crisis Network is going after Democrats with a $500K ad buy criticizing their obstruction of judicial nominees.
The Judicial Crisis Network released a new ad on Monday that attacks Democrats for obstructing President Trump’s judicial nominees.
The ad opens by calling the situation a “hidden scandal.”
It then accuses Democrats of “using gridlock and obstruction to keep liberals in control of our courts,” superimposed over images of Washington, D.C.
“Democrats will do anything to keep their liberal activist judges in charge,” the narrator says as the ad displays images of various congressional Democrats.
The ad finishes by imploring viewers to call their senators and request that they confirm the judicial nominees.
According to reporting from Axios, the JCN is spending $500,000 to put pressure on Senate Democrats:
Judicial Crisis Network is spending $500,000 on a digital ad buy with a campaign-style ad to back the campaign, along with a grassroots push — the agenda includes targeting town halls hosted by Democratic members of Congress — by Tea Party Patriots, Concerned Veterans for America, Susan B. Anthony List, and Concerned Women for America.
JCN’s chief counsel, Carrie Severino, echoed the ad’s sentiments, saying, “Democrats are abusing Senate rules to delay and obstruct President Trump’s extraordinary judicial nominees because they want to keep liberal activist judges in control of our courts.”
