Fairfax, Va.— The National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) launched a seven-figure national and regional advertising campaign on Tuesday urging the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court.
In addition to the national ad, NRA-ILA released regional spots in five states: Alabama, Alaska, Indiana, North Dakota and West Virginia.
“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,” said Chris W. Cox, executive director, NRA-ILA. “It’s critical that all pro-Second Amendment voters urge their senators to confirm Judge Kavanaugh.”
Currently, there are four justices who oppose the individual right to self-defense with a firearm, and four justices who support that right. President Donald Trump nominated Brett Kavanaugh to break the tie. The NRA-ILA is activating its membership in support of his confirmation.
The national and regional ads will begin airing on Tuesday and the campaign will run through Aug. 27. The spots will air on national cable and regional broadcasts.
“Judge Kavanaugh is a highly qualified nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court. We encourage all senators to listen to the American people and vote in favor of his confirmation,” Cox concluded.
