Mon – 3/4: Rushing is up! Ask all your red state F&F’s to call their senators!

Action #1 – These are so close, the right-wing can taste it…

(Specific information about nominees in BOLD type.)

(from the Senate Calendar for Monday). “The Senate stands adjourned until 3:00pm on Monday, March 4, 2019 …the Senate will resume consideration of Executive Calendar #15, Allison Jones Rushing, of North Carolina, to be United States Circuit Judge for the Fourth Circuit.” (Fast read here from the Leadership Conference on Civil & Human Rights here)

“During today’s session, Senator McConnell filed cloture on the following nominations:

1)           Executive Calendar #15, Allison Jones Rushing, of North Carolina, to be United States Circuit Judge for the Fourth Circuit;

2)           Executive Calendar #17, Chad A. Readler, of Ohio, to be United States Circuit Judge for the Sixth Circuit;

3)           Executive Calendar #18, Eric E. Murphy, of Ohio, to be United States Circuit Judge for the Sixth Circuit; …

…If cloture is invoked on any of the nominations, there would be up to 30 hours of debate prior to a vote on confirmation of the nomination, before proceeding to a cloture vote on the next nomination.

Minimal Script: I’m calling from [zip code] and I want to thank Sen. [___] for voting against Allison Jones Rushing, Chad A. Readler,and Eric E. Murphy,in the Judiciary Committee and that we expect [his/her] continuous oppostion on the Senate Floor.

Action #2 – Neomi Rao passed the Judiciary Committee and is headed to the floor.

Remind our Senators that her record and her supporters speak for who she is. More information on her here.

(This script works for both our Senators Feinstein and Harris. Adjust as necessary for your own.)
