In the absence of any visible effort by presumptive Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden to push Supreme Court nominations as a key election issue, a progressive group, Supreme Court Voter, is filling the void.
The group, funded by Demand Justice, a left-of-center advocacy organization that supports the appointment of liberal judges, announced its opening bid last week with a $2 million ad buy in five “battleground” states: Arizona, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.
The initial ads say that “the future of the Supreme Court is on the line.… We can’t afford any more Brett Kavanaughs, or our court will be his court.”
On the other hand, President Trump recognized the polling power of his 2016 campaign announcement of his list of potential Supreme Court nominees, and plans to announce another list.
Only now the landscape has changed, and not necessarily in a good way.
