DEMAND JUSTICE LAUNCHES BILLBOARD ADS THANKING SENS. AMY KLOBUCHAR AND TINA SMITH

WASHINGTON, DC—On Monday, Demand Justice announced a billboard ad campaign in Minnesota thanking Senators Amy Klobuchar and Tina Smith for recommending Judge Katherine Menendez for the U.S. District Court for the District of Minnesota.

“Senators Klobuchar and Smith are showing leadership in bringing much needed professional diversity to the court, as Judge Menendez will add public defender experience to a bench that currently does not have any,” said Demand Justice Chief Counsel Christopher Kang.

If confirmed, Menendez would be the first former federal public defender to serve on the U.S. District Court for the District of Minnesota and the only former public defender among its active judges.

Senators Klobuchar and Smith are accepting applications for another announced vacancy on this court, which will be an added opportunity to bring balance to the bench.

Ads are running on three billboards in Minneapolis and St. Paul. A copy of the ad can be found below.
