USA Today: NRA Ad Campaign Pumps Kavanaugh for SCOTUS

The National Rifle Association is funding a seven-figure ad campaign to urge the confirmation Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh — particularly in areas represented by U.S. senators considered potential swing votes, USA Today reported.

Five regional spots will target Sens. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska., Doug Jones, D-Ala., Joe Donnelly, D-Ind., Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., and Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D., the news outlet reported.

“The NRA strongly supports Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the U.S. Supreme Court because he will protect our constitutional right to keep and bear arms,” NRA lobbyist Chris Cox told the news outlet. “It’s critical that all pro-Second Amendment voters urge their senators to confirm Judge Kavanaugh.”

The ads will begin airing Tuesday on national cable and regional broadcasts and the campaign will run through Aug. 27, USA Today reported.

The Senate Judiciary Committee is expected to begin confirmation hearings next month.
