“The stakes have never been this high” is the subject line on a Monday morning fundraising email from Religious Right political operative Ralph Reed and his Faith and Freedom Coalition. “Getting Judge Brett Kavanaugh confirmed to the U.S. Supreme Court will be the ultimate victory for conservative and Christian values,” reads the donation page.

“With a conservative Supreme Court majority within reach, the stakes in this fight have never been so high,” wrote Reed, who asked for donations to help make sure that the group’s petition urging Senate confirmation of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh “cuts through the noise.”

Wrote Reed:

You and I both know what’s at stake: speech, religious freedom, the Second Amendment, and the right to life.

You and I both know why this fight matters. And you and I both know why we must make sure a conservative like Brett Kavanaugh gets seated on the Supreme Court before the November election. …

With your help, we’ll take this fight across the finish line—and protect conservative values for decades to come.
