Senate Democrats are launching smear campaigns against Republicans for opposing the nomination of Biden’s Supreme Court nominee, Ketanji Brown Jackson.
The ad campaigns are targeting black voters as the ruling elite turns toward racist politics to lure disgruntled voters before the 2022 midterm elections.
Democrats Now Playing Racial Politics
Currently, Democrats are targeting black voters in Wisconsin, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Florida, and North Carolina.
The spokesperson for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, Freedom Alexander Murphy, noted Republicans would have blocked the way of the “exceptionally qualified” justice without even giving her a hearing, had they been in the majority.
Murphy stated this criticism of Republican lawmakers against Jackson reminds voters about the “stakes of the 2022 elections.”

Meanwhile, the National Republican Senatorial Committee believes Democrats are taking black voters for granted.
According to the committee, Democrats are losing the support of black voters all over America because these voters feel they are being used.
The NRSC spokesman Chris Hartline also stated many black voters are distancing themselves from Democrats because they feel the party does not fulfill its campaign promises and Democrats turned to the extreme left in their political ideology.
Republicans Have a Chance to Inspire Black Voters
According to the liberal New York Times, Republicans have a golden opportunity to win a significant portion of black voters in the upcoming elections.
The Times stated Democrats believe they successfully lured black voters by nominating the first black female judge to the Supreme Court, which is not the case at all.
As per the polls, black voters are not happy with the Biden administration for the fact their demands were never met once Biden came into power.
Democrats also hoped, the Times continued, that if Republicans treated Jackson harshly in a Senate hearing, it would increase the gaps between the GOP and the black voters, which is not true.
The Times further established that irrespective of the race, voters would be more than happy to vote against the party in power, amid the rising inflation crisis in America.
Thus, in order to counter all of these anti-Democratic sentiments, Democrats are capitalizing on ad campaigns to win black voters’ sympathy in the months to come.
On Thursday, Judge Jackson was confirmed as the first black female Supreme Court justice in the history of the United States.
Three Republicans, including Mitt Romney, Lisa Murkowski, and Susan Collins, joined Democrats to pass the judge with 53-47 votes.

Republicans who voted against Jackson established she was too soft on her stance against child pornography.
Similarly, Jackson’s political ideology and her refusal to give clear answers regarding court-packing questions were also the reasons for Republicans voting against the judge.
Jackson will replace the outgoing Supreme Court Judge Stephen Beyer, who is scheduled to retire at the end of his current term in early July.
