At The Hill by Jordain Carney --
A conservative group is launching a new ad campaign touting Sen. Jeff Sessions ahead of his attorney general confirmation hearings next week targeting three states where Democrats are up for reelection.
The Judicial Crisis Network is releasing an initial 30-second ad on Friday with comments from Alabama residents praising Sessions's work in the Senate."Senator Sessions saw that there was a real need for the families that were losing their loved ones. For him to be in charge of the highest law enforcement agency, he’s the kind of person that needs to be there," Johnny Spann, an Alabama resident whose son was killed in combat in Afghanistan, says in the ad.
The video is a teaser of a longer seven minute video that will be posted to ConfirmSessions.com, a website that combats criticism of Sessions.
