  Is 8 enough? Court vacancy could roil possible election case WASHINGTON (AP) — Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death has left the Supreme Court shorthanded during a polarizing presidential campaign in which President Donald Trump has already suggested he may not accept the outcome and the court could be called on to step in and decide the fate of the nation. It's the second time in four years that a justice has died during an election year, though that eight-justice court was not asked to referee any election disputes in 2016. Today, both sides have armies of lawyers ready to take the outcome to court.

The ad will appear on TV and digital airing nationally on cable and in key states, including Colorado, Iowa, Maine, North Carolina, Utah, and Washington, D.C.

"President Trump will soon pick a strong nominee, and the Senate should act quickly to confirm her," the network said in a statement. "There is no reason Judge Amy Coney Barrett or Judge Barbara Lagoa could not be confirmed before the election."

Trump said he would announce a nominee later this week after the memorial arrangements for Ginsburg have passed. Among the front-runners of Trump's potential picks are Amy Coney Barrett, a federal appellate court judge, and Barbara Lagoa, a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit based in Georgia.

The conservative group Judicial Crisis Network on Tuesday night launched a million, multi-media ad campaign in support of President Trump ’s Supreme Court nominee -- getting a jump on the looming Senate fight as progressive and liberal-leaning groups gear up to oppose Trump ’s pick .

Barrett was also a contender to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy in 2018, a seat that ultimately was filled by Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

Lagoa, of Florida, was the first Latina to serve on Florida's high court and could help potentially boost Trump's reelection chances in the crucial state heading into November.

Severino, a onetime law clerk for Justice Clarence Thomas, told CNBC the network is set to "match" and "surpass" the ad spending of their progressive rival Demand Justice, who said they would invest $10 million in ads against filling Ginsburg's seat until after the election.

“We are going to have a state of the art campaign, using whatever we need to win this fight,” Severino said.

The network has been influential in backing Trump's other two nominees to the court, Kavanaugh and Justice Neil Gorsuch.

The group spent $10 million in support of Kavanaugh, who was confirmed by the Senate with a 50-48 vote. The network spent a similar amount in support of Gorsuch in 2017, who was confirmed 54-45 by the Senate.
