Gorsuch will be coming up for a confirmation vote this week. Now is the time to make one more push so our legistlators, whether GOP or Dem, hear our message.
First, we’re shocked at some of the Dems who have not yet declared how they will vote on Gorsuch. Whether they’re just waiting to show their hands or really are undecided, we need to let them know that we expect them to oppose such a partisan pick.
With respect to the GOP, the idea of them changing the rules (the ‘nuclear’ option), to allow a simple majority vote for Supreme Court Justice, would mean a sad day for our democracy.
TODAY’s 5 Minute Action:
Step 1: Please call or fax your legislator (again) to let them know where you stand, particularly those Dem’s who are undecided:
DEM’s WHO HAVEN’T SAID (6)
Sen. Michael Bennet (Colo.)
Sen. Chris Coons (Del.)
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (Calif.)
Sen. Angus King (I-Maine)
Sen. Bob Menendez (N.J.)
Sen. Mark Warner (Va.)
DEM’s WHO ARE SQUISHY (2)*
Sen. Ben Cardin (Md.)
Sen. Patrick Leahy (Vt.)
DEM’s VOTING FOR (3): Sens. Joe Manchin (West Virginia), Heidi Heitkamp (North Dakota), Joe Donnelly (Indiana)
ALL GOP are voting for him, so use this to let them know NOT to use the nuclear option!

- Tailor the script to whether they are GOP, a Dem supporting Gorsuch, an undecided Dem, or one already confirmed to fight his confirmation. The essense should include: “I am (name) from (zip). I am opposed to Gorsuch’s confirmation based on his historical interpretation of the constitution in favor of big corporations over individual rights, as well as opposition of women’s choice and LGBT rights. I urge you to vote NO. Further, I am sickened by the GOP threat of a ‘nuclear’ option, which would be a further step by this administration to destroy our democracy.”
BREATHE AND STEP FORWARD!
