Decreeing three top Democratic senators for what it charges are their “hypocrisy on racial and gender diversity in the federal judiciary,” a Right-leaning outside group is launching digital ads, ahead of their roles in the upcoming confirmation process for federal judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, President Biden’s nominee to the Supreme Court.

The slew of digital ads by Article III Project, which were shared first with Fox News Digital on Tuesday, will highlight the voting records of Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York, Senate Judiciary Committee chair Dick Durbin of Illinois, and Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island, one of the most vocal Democratic members of the Judiciary Committee. The group spotlighted their analysis, which indicates the three senators voted against the vast majority of former President Donald Trump’s female and minority federal appeals court nominees.

According to Article III, Schumer voted against 95% of Trump’s female and minority federal appeals court nominees, with Durbin voting against 81% and Whitehouse 71% of those nominees. The figures are showcased in the group’s new display ads, which Article III tells Fox News Digital it’s spending a modest five figures to run digitally.

Following Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer’s January announcement that he would retire at the end of the current term, Biden followed through on a presidential campaign promise by nominating the first Black woman to the nation’s highest court.

The Senate Judiciary Committee is scheduled to hold confirmation hearings on Jackson, beginning on March 21. Jackson appeared before the Judiciary Committee last year when confirmed to the Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit.

The Article III Project analysis and ads come in the wake of stabs by some Democrats aimed at Republican lawmakers who criticized Biden’s promise to nominate a Black woman and, as the White House has insinuated that racism may be a factor in GOP opposition to a Biden nominee.

“Democrats talk a big game about diversity in the judiciary, so much so that they have made race and gender a prerequisite for President Biden’s first Supreme Court nomination. Dozens of Democratic senators, including Senators Schumer, Durbin, and Whitehouse, consistently voted against women and minority nominees from Presidents Trump and Bush. Democrats don’t care about diversity; they only care about power. Understanding their hypocrisy ahead of this Supreme Court fight is crucial to the public debate,” charged Article III Project founder and President Mike Davis.
