The conservative activist group Progress for America today announced an 18-state barnstorming tour that it hopes will rally Americans behind Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito, whose confirmation hearings start January 9.
A bipartisan assortment of Alito supporters will be visiting the 18 states selected by Progress for America as key battlegrounds.
The states include:
- New Hampshire
- North Dakota
- Rhode Island
- South Dakota
- West Virginia
Progress for America is financing the tour and a website JudgeAlito.com in an effort to counter what it characterizes as a liberal misinformation campaign.
“Unfortunately, liberal special interest groups are escalating their smear campaign against Judge Alito daily,” according to a e-mail sent to supporters Monday. “We need your help to counter these liberal extremists.”
Conservatives are encouraged to visit JudgeAlito.com/action to learn what they can do to get involved.
