JCN Launches First Phase of $10 Million Campaign
The first phase will consist of $2 million ad buy in MO, IN, ND, MT, and D.C.
WASHINGTON – The Judicial Crisis Network (JCN) tonight launched the first phase of its $10 million national campaign to confirm President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch. This phase consists of a $2 million broadcast, cable, satellite and digital ad buy starting in MO, IN, ND, MT, and Washington, D.C.
JCN is leading a broad array of 50+ groups in a comprehensive campaign that will consist of paid advertising, research, grassroots activity, earned media and a coalition effort. This campaign is anticipated to be the most robust operation in the history of confirmation battles. Last year, JCN spent more than $7 million in its “Let the People Decide” victory in the Garland nomination battle, and it expects to eclipse that number by spending at least $10 million in its newest effort to support President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch. JCN and its allies will focus their resources in states where Senate Democrats are vulnerable in 2018, where President Trump won – in some cases by significantly large margins.
“Neil Gorsuch is exceptionally qualified, a fair and independent judge who bases his decisions on the Constitution, and he is widely respected on both sides of the aisle. He was confirmed unanimously to one of our highest courts in 2006, and I am confident he will receive bipartisan support again this time. Some Democrats may be tempted to obstruct his nomination, but we have already launched a robust campaign in key states and we will ultimately force vulnerable Senators to choose between obstructing and keeping their Senate seats.” Carrie Severino, Chief Counsel for the Judicial Crisis Network.
