Whatever Happens, We Keep Fighting

Official Action for Saturday, October 6

With Senators Collins, Manchin and Flake all saying that they will vote “yes” on Brett Kavanaugh, it is looking likely that the Senate will confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. We said we would fight Kavanaugh until the end, and we will. What’s more, we will keep fighting the thing that got us here in the first place--the Republican stranglehold on Congress.

****
Action 1: Fight to the Finish

While our senators are safe ‘no’ votes, calling them gives them the chance to show their colleagues and the nation at large that the American people are against Kavanaugh. Until the vote on Kavanaugh (probably around 1:30 p.m. Pacific Time), we will continue to call them.

Sample script:
“Hello, I’m [name] from [city, zip]. I wanted to thank Senator [name] for voting against the cloture motion for Brett Kavanaugh. Today Senator [name] must vote to block Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court.”
