NRA Begins Ad Campaign in Support of Gorsuch

The National Rifle Association (NRA) launched an advertising campaign in support of Neil Gorsuch’s nomination to the Supreme Court Monday, targeting red-state Democratic senators for their previous votes on gun control.

One ad targeting Sen. Joe Donnelly (D-IN) plays a clip of Donnelly saying “I’m a supporter of the Second Amendment.”

Meanwhile, a narrarator criticizes Donnelly’s record on gun rights: “Joe Donnelly talks a good game on gun rights, but Donnelly voted for Barack Obama’s gun control.”

The narrator then implores the viewer to call Donnelly’s office: “Tell Joe Donnelly, don’t let us down again. Vote to confirm Judge Neil Gorsuch.”

The NRA posted similar advertisements against Sens. Claire McCaskill (D-MO), Jon Tester (D-MT), and Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND).

The McCaskill and Tester ads blasted red-state Democrats for voting “to put anti-gun justices on the Supreme Court, not once, but twice.”

McCaskill and Tester both voted to confirm Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court.
