[Ed. – One prong of the Democrats’ largely transparent campaign to convert the U.S. to a one-party system.]

The left-wing group leading a campaign to have Senate Democrats eliminate the filibuster is housed at one of the left’s most powerful dark money networks, business records show.

Fix Our Senate is steering a coalition of 60 progressive groups to pressure moderate Democrats to eliminate the filibuster, which requires a 60-vote supermajority to advance legislation.

Arabella’s network of funds is used by the nation’s wealthiest liberal donors to secretly bankroll a host of progressive initiatives.

The coalition has added dozens of groups in recent days as Democrats increase their calls to eliminate the filibuster. President Joe Biden has said he supports filibuster reform and would prefer a return to a “talking filibuster,” but White House press secretary Jen Psaki said the president remains “open to hearing” other ideas.
