Justice Scalia's death reminds us the next President will pick as many as four Supreme Court justices and hundreds of other federal judges. Just who would Donald Trump pick? One person Trump suggested took Roy Moore off the Alabama Supreme Court for displaying the Ten Commandments. Another forced Indiana to fund Planned Parenthood. And one more, who threw out New Jersey's partial-birth abortion ban. Everything is on the line now. Our rights. Our freedoms. Our America. And the courts are the battleground. So who do you trust? Who do you trust to fill our federal courts? Donald Trump with his New York values?

Ted Cruz for President. Let's take our country back now before it's too late. Courageous Conservatives PAC paid for this ad and is solely responsible for its contents.
