NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The three Supreme Court justices facing retention elections next month have launched a television ad to stress their dedication to the federal and state constitutions.

The three Democrats in the ad boast of protecting gun rights and of upholding nearly 90 percent of death sentences that have come before them.

Republican Senate Speaker Ron Ramsey has led an effort to defeat one or all of the sitting justices on the ballot in August. If just one of them loses, the high court would likely gain a GOP majority. The court will name the next attorney to an eight-year term after the election.

Meanwhile, a group called the Tennessee Forum is sending out a mail piece urging voters to "Drop the hammer on our liberal Supreme Court."
