Looking to make their own version of EMILY's List, Republicans have launched "Winning for Women," a network of conservative women financed by super donors like Betsy DeVos, Linda McMahon, Rebekah Mercer, and the Ricketts family in the hope of shoving a bunch of rightwing women onto ballots for the 2018 elections.
