Today, RNLA Vice President for Communications and RNC Committeewoman from California Harmeet Dhillon’s firm and Michael Best & Friedrich filed a lawsuit against California Governor Gavin Newsom seeking to enjoin California Demorats' illegal attempt to keep qualified candidates off the Presidential ballot. The lawsuit says in part:

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg made news this week for not only once again praising Justice Kavanaugh, but for also trashing a new liberal wackadoodle idea - COURT PACKING. Ironically, there is arguably no greater living liberal icon than RBG, so will Democrats listen to her wisdom?
This time when she defended Justice Brett Kavanaugh she also defended Justice Neil Gorsuch.Read more
Like many Democrat candidates running for President in 2020, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has been an active proponent of campaign finance reform. According to OpenSecrets, "When he served as New York City’s public advocate in 2010, he penned an article in The Nation condemning Citizens United and called on state and local leaders across America to join him..."
