A trio of conservative groups on Saturday announced plans to spend millions of dollars in support of Judge Amy Coney Barrett's nomination to the Supreme Court, previewing what will be an expensive and intense confirmation battle in the weeks before Election Day.

Liberal groups are expected to spend millions in opposition to Barrett's nomination as well.
Judicial Crisis Network, which focuses on the nomination and confirmation of conservative judges, said it expects to spend at least $10 million in support of Barrett. The group already launched a $2.2 million campaign urging swing state Republicans to move forward with Barrett's confirmation despite it coming so close to the election.
The organization on Saturday unveiled a $3 million ad buy that focuses on her qualifications from the court. The ads will air in Colorado, Iowa, Maine, North Carolina, Utah, and Washington D.C.
"Justice Ginsburg was confirmed in 42 days, Justice O'Connor in 33, and both confirmations were nearly unanimous," Carrie Severino, president of Judicial Crisis Network, said in a statement. "But Democrats won't be able to bring themselves to support Judge Barrett because they are beholden to leftwing extremists who want to pack the Supreme Court and defund the police while our cities burn."
