Conservatives roll out millions to back Trump’s SCOTUS nominee

Conservative groups are rolling out million dollar ad buys Monday evening immediately after President Donald Trump announces his pick to replace outgoing Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy.

Judicial Crisis Network (JCN), a conservative political organization, is launching a $1.4 million ad campaign Monday evening in Alabama, Indiana, North Dakota, and West Virginia. The ads will start right after Trump announces his nominee at 9 p.m. Monday night, featuring an introductory bio on the nominee. In addition to running in those four states, the ads will run on national cable and digital media.

The buy comes after JCN rolled out a seven-figure ad campaign supporting Justice Neil Gorsuch — Trump’s first nominee to SCOTUS. The ad, much like Monday’s, targets vulnerable Democratic senators up for re-election in November in states Trump won in 2016.

In total, JCN will spend $2.4 million backing Trump’s nominee in national cable, broadcast and digital media.

Trump is expected to pick one of four potential nominees remaining under consideration: Judges Brett Kavanaugh, Amy Coney Barrett, Raymond Kethledge and Thomas Hardiman.
