Calhoun County Circuit Judge Debra Jones, candidate for Alabama Supreme Court associate justice place five, released her campaign’s first digital ad of the 2022 GOP primary election cycle.
The ad outlines Jones’ conservative views and touts former President Donald Trump’s appointment of right-leaning justices to the U.S. Supreme Court.
In a release announcing her digital ad, Jones proclaimed herself to have been impartial in the application of the law throughout her judicial career.
“I have a proven record of being a conservative judge. I have earned a reputation of being honest and fair,” stated Jones. “I strictly apply the law to everyone equally without fear or favor and treat each person in my courtroom with dignity and respect.”
She added, “As a jury trial judge, I defend the Alabama and US Constitutions every day. As a Supreme Court Justice, I’ll continue fighting for the people of this state. I’ll defend our rights!”
The ad features a voice-over throughout its 30-second duration tying Jones to Trump’s desire to place more conservative justices on the judiciary.
“President Trump promised more conservatives on the Supreme Court and he kept his word. Now, we have the chance to elect a real conservative fighter for the Alabama Supreme Court, Judge Debra Jones,” the ad says. “Pro-life, she’ll defend our Second Amendment gun rights, and Judge Jones is ready to stand up against the D.C. liberals. President Trump was right, to make America great again, we need more conservatives on the Alabama Supreme Court – real conservatives like Judge Debra Jones.”
The primary election is slated to occur on May 24, 2022.
EDITOR’S NOTE: This article has been corrected from a previous version which stated that the ad was a TV spot rather than a digital ad.
