The Judicial Crisis Network said Thursday that it was launching a $350,000 television and digital advertising campaign thanking President Donald Trump and Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for "appointing and confirming exceedingly well-qualified judges."

The weeklong effort features separate spots for Trump and McConnell, the six-term Kentucky senator, and will begin on Sunday on network public-affairs programs in the Washington area.

They later will be shown on Fox News programs and on MSNBC's "Morning Joe."

Both ads hail last year's appointment of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, with the spot on Trump saying that also "with strong defenders of the Constitution on courts across the country, President Trump is shaping the judiciary for generations."

It adds that Trump has had more circuit court judges appointed and confirmed than five predecessors: John F. Kennedy, Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, George W. Bush and Barack Obama.

In praising McConnell, the watchdog group's ad says that "he's kept his promises: leading the Senate to confirm a record number of circuit court judges.

"Brilliant judges who will apply the Constitution just as it was written and serve on our courts for decades to come."

Both spots have telephone numbers to call to thank Trump and McConnell for their efforts.

Carrie Severino, Judicial Crisis Network's chief counsel and policy director, called the appointments "one of the greatest and most lasting successes of President Trump's first year."

She said the president was "keeping his campaign promise to fill the federal bench with brilliant judges who follow the Constitution.

"And thanks to the strong leadership of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell," she added, "they are being confirmed by the Senate."

"Thank you, President Trump and Senator McConnell for your important work on confirming outstanding judicial nominees — and we look forward to more judicial confirmations in 2018."
