Group Goes After SCOTUS 'Favorites'

More

While the rest of the nation speculates at who's on President Obama's short list for the Supreme Court, Judicial Confirmation Network (JCN) seems to have whittled down a list of favorites worth attacking. The group, run by former Bush/Cheney campaigner Gary Marx, launched a website this morning called "Obama's Frontrunners," dedicated to attacking Elena Kagan, Diane Wood, and Sonia Sotomayor. The site hosts three web ads, one attacking the record of each candidate.

The group is considering running the ads on radio and TV. Administration officials have said President Obama will announce a nominee next week; at that point, we'll know if JCN was on the right track with its list.

In a nutshell, here's how JCN wants to portray each potential candidate:

Elena Kagan: Academic peacenik opposed to the military

Diane Wood: Disriminates against religious conservatives and their freedom of speech

Sonia Sotomayor: Prejudiced against white firefighters
