Politico is now reporting that a growing number of organizations are joining the effort to convince the Senate to stop the Becerra nomination.
A trio of conservative organizations are launching a multimillion dollar advertising blitz aimed at undermining two of President Joe Biden’s high-profile nominees.
The ad buy, first reported by POLITICO, will air across cable news networks in Washington, D.C. and digital platforms starting Thursday.
The campaign is being led by the advocacy groups Judicial Crisis Network, Heritage Action for America, and Americans for Public Trust….
Other conservative groups supporting the campaign include CatholicVote, which is contacting 350,000 of its activists to urge them to call their senators; Susan B. Anthony List; and the Competitive Enterprise Institute. CatholicVote and Susan B. Anthony List are especially focused on Becerra and Gupta’s anti-abortion records.
One of the new ads from Heritage Action notes that Becerra, as Attorney General of California, “sued Catholic nuns” and how he “supports government run health care.”
Brian Burch, President of CatholicVote.org, noted that Becerra also prosecuted pro-life journalist David Daleiden and required pro-life pregnancy centers to advertise for abortion.
“Xavier Becerra has a long record of open hostility to people of faith, and if confirmed, will serve as the abortion industry’s puppet,” said Burch.
