Today, the RNC launched a new Facebook ad campaign to support Judge Gorsuch’s nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court in 2018 battleground states, including Colorado. The ad’s request of the Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet? Commit to an up-or-down vote on his nomination in the full Senate. Not only do the ads include this ask, but they also compel constituents to call Bennet’s office to ask him to commit to a vote of the full Senate. Feel free to give Sen. Bennet a call, too, PeakNation™.
While Bennet suggested in his introduction of that he would be in favor of such a vote, recent discussion by Governor Hickenlooper (who tried to give him political cover) suggests that Bennet may be getting a full-court press from his Democratic colleagues to delay the vote.
In addition to targeting Bennet, the RNC is targeting 11 other U.S. Senators, including Sens. Kaine (D-VA), Nelson (D-FL), Brown (D-OH), Casey (D-PA), Baldwin (D-WI), Donnelly (D-IN), McCaskill (D-MO), Tester (D-MT), Heitkamp (D-ND), Manchin (D-WV), and Stabenow (D-MI).
