NBC: Progressive group launches ads hitting Michael Bennet on judicial nominations
WASHINGTON — Demand Justice, a progressive group fighting President Donald Trump’s judicial nominations, is elevating its battle with Sen. Michael Bennet, D-Colo., over the issue with a new spate of advertisements targeting Bennet’s presidential bid.
The group has been a regular critic of Bennet’s, giving him an ‘F’ grade on its scorecard ranking lawmakers’ “willingness to fight Trump’s judges.” And now it’s launching television and digital ads in the early-primary state of New Hampshire that accuse Bennet of “helping” Trump confirm judges.
“Bennet’s backed many of Trump’s extreme judges. He votes for them almost 70 percent of the time. Bennet even praised Neil Gorsuch when Trump picked him for the Supreme Court seat stolen from President Obama,” the ad’s narrator says.
