Fairfax, Va. – The National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) today launched a $1 million media buy urging U.S. Senators in four states to oppose a filibuster and vote to confirm Judge Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court. One of the ads will air on television stations across North Dakota beginning Tuesday, March 28.
“Right now, we don’t have a majority on the Supreme Court in support of our basic right to keep a gun in our home for self-protection," said Chris W. Cox, executive director of NRA-ILA.
"Judge Neil Gorsuch would strongly defend our constitutional rights, including the Second Amendment. It's critical that the U.S. Senate swiftly confirm Judge Gorsuch."
This ad campaign comes as many Senate Democrats are attempting to derail Gorsuch’s confirmation. Already, they have unjustifiably delayed the Senate Judiciary Committee vote for a week and threatened a filibuster. North Dakota voters need to know where Senator Heitkamp stands on this important issue.
"North Dakotans support their constitutional right to self-protection. Sen. Heitkamp should oppose Chuck Schumer's filibuster efforts and vote to confirm Judge Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court," concluded Cox.

ANNCR: Heidi Heitkamp says the right things on gun rights.
HEIDI: I'm a staunch supporter of the Second Amendment.
ANNCR: Now she has a chance to prove it. Your freedom is on the line. President Trump chose a pro-gun judge for the Supreme Court. Tell Heidi Heitkamp: Say no to Chuck Schumer and the liberal elites. Vote to confirm Judge Neil Gorsuch. The North Dakota Men and Women of the National Rifle Association are responsible for the content of this advertising.
