Conservatives go on-the-air after Sotomayer

A conservative legal group is now up with the first ad from the right on Judge Sonia Sotomayer's Supreme Court nomination, arguing "America deserves better."

The conservative Judicial Confirmation Network (JCN) launched a website and ad taking aim at Sotomayer's now-publicized comments on the role of her ethnicity in making decisions, as well as her on-camera remarks about courts making policy.

The ad marks a first salvo from the right in what is sure to be a drawn-out fight between liberal and conservative interest groups over President Obama's first nominee to the nation's highest court.

The liberal Coalition for Constitutional Values launched its own ad this morning supporting Sotomayer's nomination.
