Monday – 7/9: On your mark…The Judicial Race starts tonight. There’s a lot for you to do…

Overall strategy was covered here.

#1 – We have TWO members on the Senate Intelligence Committee. Call both of them.

While 7 of our senators were diverting attention with their humiliating waste-of-time/money trip to Russia, Senator Burr (G-TX), head of the Senate Intelligence Committee snuck out a report right before the holiday stating, that yes, the original reports on Russia’s interference in our election were correct.  Not only did Russia do it, but they pose a significant threat to any subsequent elections. If your senator is on this committee, call them.

U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence.
Republicans
James Risch – ID
Marco Rubio – FL
Susan Collins – ME
Roy Blunt – MO
James Lankford – OK
Tom Cotton – AR
John Cornyn – TX
Democrats
Dianne Feinstein – CA
Ron Wyden – OR
Martin Heinrich – NM
Angus King – ME
Joe Manchin – WE
Kamala Harris – CA

Minimal Script: I’m calling from [zip code] to ask Senator [___] that the Committee formally request that the vetting of any Supreme Court justice be held off until our current administration has been cleared of all suspicion of colluding with Russia to affect the 2016 election.

Contact:
Senator Feinstein: DC (202) 224-3841, LA (310) 914-7300, SF (415) 393-0707, SD (619) 231-9712, Fresno (559) 485-7430
and Senator Harris: DC (202) 224-3553, LA (213) 894-5000, SAC (916) 448-2787, Fresno (559) 497-5109, SF (415) 355-9041, SD (619) 239-3884

#2 – Scroll through your contacts and look for people in these states to contact.

We’re pretty sure Feinstein and Harris are good on Roe v. Wade, Russia, LGBTQ civil rights, Obamacare and gerrymandering, but we all know people in states where their legislators are not nearly as sane. If you have contacts in the following states, please urge them to call:

  • Manchin (WV) (Democrats  who voted for Gorsuch)
  • Heitkamp (ND) (Democrats  who voted for Gorsuch)
  • Donnelly (IN) (Democrats  who voted for Gorsuch)
  • Collins (ME)  (Will vote on behalf of women’s rights)
  • Murkowski (AL) (Will vote on behalf of women’s rights)
  • Senators Bob Corker (TN)  (He’s not running again. Ask him to caucus with the Dems.)
  • Jeff Flake (AZ) (He’s not running again. Ask him to caucus with the Dems.)
  • Last minute entry. Call Doug Jones (AL) He’s gotten stuck at the the top of the fence.

#3 – Call our Senators and remind them…

There’s only a few things our senators can do, but let’s ask for the lot…

  • uphold the McConnell Rule: Do not allow hearings in an election year;
  • insist they refuse to allow a quorum.
  • any SCOTUS nominee must recuse him/herself from Russia investigation ;
  • any SCOTUS nominee must promise to uphold Roe v Wade or stare decisis.

Minimal Script: I’m calling from [zip code] to ask Senator [___] to do whatever possible to slow down the Supreme Court pick, including the “McConnell rule” and refusing to allow a quorum, and to question any nominee on recusal from the russian investigation, and positions on Roe v.Wade, LGBTQ civil rights, climate change, Obamacare, gerrymandering, labor and support for public education.

Contact:
Senator Feinstein: DC (202) 224-3841, LA (310) 914-7300, SF (415) 393-0707, SD (619) 231-9712, Fresno (559) 485-7430
and Senator Harris: DC (202) 224-3553, LA (213) 894-5000, SAC (916) 448-2787, Fresno (559) 497-5109, SF (415) 355-9041, SD (619) 239-3884
