Americans for Prosperity is launching ads in support of Michael Brennan, President Donald Trump’s nominee to the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, The Washington Examiner said.

"Brennan’s exceptional record as a lawyer and jurist makes him an outstanding nominee for the Seventh Circuit, and he should be confirmed by the Senate immediately," said Sarah Field, AFP’s vice president of judicial strategy.

AFP is backed by billionaire brothers, Charles and David Koch.

Brennan’s nomination cleared the Senate Judiciary Committee last week. Democrats were critical of the vote, however, since Sen. Tammy Gladwin, D-Wis. did not return her "blue slip" in support of him, the Examiner noted.

The website added committees have generally waited for the nominee’s home-state senators to return the slips as a sign of their approval.

Rollcall noted a spokesman for the Judiciary Committee had said committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, had met with Baldwin and come away with the belief that her "intention is to not participate in the blue slip courtesy."

"We applaud Senator Grassley for ushering Brennan through committee and ignoring the political games of Senator Baldwin, who continues to value partisanship over the best interests of her constituents," Field said.

"We urge the citizens of Wisconsin to get involved and contact their senators in Brennan’s support. Each day that passes without this vacancy filled means another day where American citizens are denied the justice guaranteed to them by the Constitution."

The group will be running digital ads in Wisconsin urging voters to call their senators in support of Brennan. The ads also will target Baldwin, according to the Examiner.

"We will continue mobilizing our activists as needed to ensure fair and qualified nominees are confirmed to the federal bench, and we will hold accountable those who play games with the American judiciary," Field said.
