Civil Rights Groups Take Out Full-Page Ads Against Brett Kavanaugh

The Human Rights Campaign and the National Women’s Law Center are taking out ads in major newspapers in four states ― Alaska, Colorado, Maine and Nevada ― warning of President Donald Trump’s court pick being a threat to LGBTQ rights, abortion rights and affordable health care. Ads targeting Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) and Susan Collins (Maine) will praise them for their past support of the Affordable Care Act, which critics of Kavanaugh warn is at risk if he is confirmed. Other ads aimed at Dean Heller (Nev.), who is up for re-election in November, and Cory Gardner (Colo.) will call on them to protect the law.
