True North Research has released a new report detailing the rightwing campaign to confirm Amy Coney Barrett and capture the Supreme Court.
The reason Leonard Leo’s dark money network, Koch-funded groups, and other allies are “all in” for President Trump’s election-eve nominee to the Supreme Court is because they believe she will be a sure vote for their agenda.
