NRA Launches Four-State Ad Campaign In Favor Of Judge Gorsuch

posted on March 30, 2017

With Democratic leaders in the U.S. Senate threatening to do anything within their power to stop the confirmation of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court, the National Rifle Association is going on the offense.

NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action has announced a $1 million ad buy in four states—Indiana, North Dakota, Montana and Missouri—urging U.S. senators in those states to oppose a filibuster and vote to confirm Gorsuch. The ads specifically target Democrat U.S. Senators Joe Donnelly of Indiana, Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, Jon Tester of Montana and Claire McCaskill of Missouri.

“Right now, we don’t have a majority on the Supreme Court in support of our basic right to keep a gun in our home for self-protection,” said Chris W. Cox, NRA-ILA executive director. “Judge Neil Gorsuch would strongly defend our constitutional rights, including the Second Amendment. It's critical that the U.S. Senate swiftly confirm Judge Gorsuch.”

The U.S. Senate vote on Gorsuch’s confirmation is set for April 7.
