WASHINGTON, DC— Demand Justice on Monday announced a six-figure cable and digital ad campaign urging senators to confirm President Biden’s groundbreaking judicial nominee Dale Ho. The new spot features Ho’s moving testimony at his Senate confirmation hearing last week about his commitment to protecting democracy for all Americans.

Demand Justice Chief Counsel Christopher Kang said: “Dale Ho is one of the most exciting judicial nominees in a generation. His nomination shows the kind of extraordinary lawyers we can promote when Democrats look beyond the ranks of corporate lawyers and prosecutors to find judges who have spent their careers standing up for the rights of all Americans. This ad campaign is an investment in making sure that Americans who care about protecting voting rights know President Biden and Leader Schumer have given Senate Democrats the opportunity to confirm a champion for democracy to the federal bench.” 

In the ad, a narrator introduces Ho as “one of America’s best voting rights lawyers, and President Biden’s latest pick to restore balance to the courts.” 

Ho himself says: “I deeply, deeply believe in the principle of equal justice under the law. I have sought, as a voting rights lawyer, to try to ensure that every American who’s eligible to vote has an opportunity to do so. I’ve represented people who have been registered as members of both political parties, because I believe that’s how our system works.” 

Previously, Demand Justice released a video of musician and activist John Legend discussing Ho’s nomination with Senate Majority Leader Schumer, who recommended Ho to the White House.

The buy will run on cable TV in the Washington, DC, market and will include placements on Facebook and Instagram.
