Business Lobby to Get Behind Judicial Bids
An Industry Group's Plan to Spend Millions Promoting Conservative Nominees Brings a New Dimension to the Divisive Confirmation Battles


A powerful business lobby is preparing a multimillion-dollar campaign to aid the White House in its quest to win approval for conservative judges, a move that could transform the ideological battles over the federal judiciary and the Supreme Court.
