New Ad to Precede Hearing and Coincide With 18-State Surrogate Travel
WASHINGTON, Jan. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Progress for America Voter Fund (PFA- VF) today announced a 9-day, $500,000 advertising buy in support of the confirmation of Judge Samuel Alito to the U.S. Supreme Court. The television ad, entitled "Drip," will precede the U.S. Senate confirmation hearings and coincide with PFA's 18-state barnstorm by 29 of Alito's clerks, personal friends, mentors and former colleagues. Details of the tour, "A Resolution worth Keeping," can be viewed at: http://www.judgealito.com/travel.
"All my life, I was taught to consider the source," said PFA Executive Director Chris Myers. "And the same principle applies when the liberal fundraising groups constantly attack Judge Samuel Alito but respected, non- partisan Supreme Court observers say he is widely admired, fair-minded and apolitical. This ad is specifically geared at having people consider the source of the senseless liberal assaults on Samuel Alito."
The thirty-second ad targets "desperate liberal attacks" on Judge Alito's character and qualifications, and highlights a column by Stuart Taylor -- an independent and well-respected journalist with the National Journal.
In the column, Taylor states that, " ... some (but not all) reporters insinuate that Alito is a slippery character ... In fact, this is a judge who ... is widely admired by liberals, moderates, and conservatives who know him well as fair-minded, committed to apolitical judging, and wedded to no ideological agenda other than restraint in the exercise of judicial power ..."
Starting Tuesday, January 3rd through Monday, January 9th, "Drip" will air on CNN and FOX News Channel, and the highly rated FOX News Sunday program on Sunday, January 8th. Timed to when U.S. Senators will be in their respective states, the ad will also air on local cable stations in Louisiana, North Dakota and Maine from Tuesday, January 3rd through Sunday, January 8th.
