CAMPAIGN: “Merrick Garland threatens Colorado’s values.”
DENVER—Today, Advancing Colorado launched a digital campaign, “Merrick Garland threatens Colorado’s values.” The campaign aims to raise awareness of the Merrick Garland’s nomination to the Supreme Court of the United States, featuring a petition to tell Sen. Michael Bennet, D-Colo., to oppose his nomination and let Coloradans shape the future of the Supreme Court in the next election.
Below is text featured on the campaign micro-site:
“Coloradans believe in future energy production, the right to bear arms, property rights and government accountability.
The Supreme Court of the United States can protect these values, or end them.
Sen. Michael Bennet supports Merrick Garland’s nomination and it threatens our rights.
Sen. Michael Bennet and President Obama want to take the future of the Supreme Court out of our hands.
Sign our petition to tell Bennet you believe Coloradans should decide the future of the Supreme Court.”
Advancing Colorado Executive Director Jonathan Lockwood released the following statement:
“Coloradans want to see our rights protected and we believe that voters should shape the future of the Supreme Court. Our democratic process is meant to protect our values and we cannot afford for President Obama and Sen. Michael Bennet to take that away from us.”
