BATON ROUGE, La. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - A conservative group is criticizing Democratic U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu in a new television ad for supporting the president's judicial picks.

The Judicial Crisis Network said the 30-second commercial begins running Monday and will air statewide for two weeks. The organization ran a similar ad against U.S. Sen. Mark Pryor, a Democrat from Arkansas.

The spot slams Landrieu for backing President Barack Obama's judicial nominees and for supporting a Senate rule change curbing the use of the stalling tactic called the filibuster, a move that will help Obama fill vacant judgeships.

It's the latest of several attack ads launched by conservative groups against Landrieu, who is seeking a fourth term in next year's election. She faces two Republican challengers: U.S. Rep. Bill Cassidy and retired Air Force Col. Rob Maness.
