SGLF Continues Push for Maine Legislators with Second Ad in Support of Judge Brett Kavanaugh
State Government Leadership Foundation Launches Second Ad in Maine Highlighting Legislative Support for SCOTUS Nominee Kavanaugh
WASHINGTON, DC (September 10, 2018) — The State Government Leadership Foundation began running a second ad today highlighting Maine Republican state legislators’ support for the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court.
The multiple six-figure multimedia campaign is showcasing Maine’s Republican legislative members’ description of Kavanaugh as “impeccably qualified,” and having a “strong respect for the independence of the Judicial Branch.” Kavanaugh, a Yale Law School graduate, has served on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia since 2006, and previously clerked for recently-retired Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy. The new ad, now entering rotation throughout Maine, features statements of Judge Kavanaugh from last week’s U.S. Senate confirmation hearings.
“Americans deserve judges on our highest courts who are committed to the rule of law, and who will not legislate from the bench,” SGLF Executive Director Matt Walter stated. “Judge Brett Kavanaugh would be an incredible addition to the Supreme Court and I proudly join the Maine legislators who want him confirmed as soon as possible,” Walter added.
The multimedia campaign includes television and digital advertisements across the state and the newest ad can be seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A_5wFFlcbOU
Since the launch of the campaign early last week, over 2 million digital impressions have been delivered through a variety of social and mobile applications.
A script of the new SGLF ad follows:
The more people get to know Judge Brett Kavanaugh, the more they like him.
Judge Brett Kavanaugh:
If confirmed to the Supreme Court I will keep an open mind in every case.
Over the past 12 years, I have ruled sometimes for the prosecution and sometimes for criminal defendants.
Sometimes for workers and sometimes for businesses.
In each case, I have followed the law.
Brett Kavanaugh always follows the law and has broad support from members of Maine’s legislature.
It’s time to confirm Kavanaugh.
