A liberal group that advocates for judicial reform is launching a multimillion-dollar advertising campaign accusing Republicans of “rushing to play politics” with the Supreme Court, Politico reports.

Demand Justice, the same group that bought the domain name “AmyConeyBarrett.com” to oppose President Donald Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court, will air its ads in several states with very competitive Senate races this year, including Iowa, Arizona, North Carolina, and Colorado. The ad is set to air just before Trump faces Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden in the first debate Tuesday night.

The group has also suggested that Senate Democrats boycott Barrett’s confirmation hearing as a sign of protest over “an illegitimate process” to replace the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

“I think that boycotting the hearing should continue to be on the table,” Demand Justice chief counsel Chris Kang told Vox in an interview. “I think the takeaway is that this is an illegitimate process.”

He said, “What we’re really looking for from Senate Democrats more than specific parliamentary tactics is how are Democrats going to show that this is an illegitimate process, that this is an illegitimate nominee. And so there are some things that there’s no question Democrats can do, like not taking courtesy meetings.”

Kang added that Democrats in the Senate “have to start looking ahead,” when it comes to packing the court.

“I mean, right now, our focus is on stopping this nomination, and building the voice and the power to demonstrate to Senate Republicans what is at stake here for them. But at the end of the day, if we are not successful, I definitely think Democrats need to be thinking about what is the logical response when Republicans steal two Supreme Court seats in the span of four years and completely undermine our democracy and the legitimacy of the institution itself,” Kang said.
