With less than a month to go before Senate confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee John Roberts are set to begin, the ad wars are beginning to heat up.

In response to an inflammatory ad critical of Supreme Court nominee John Roberts sponsored by NARAL, Progress for America has responded with a rebuttal ad. The ad war is only part of the simmering battle over the Roberts nomination, as Democrats continue to insist the Bush administration release more documents.
