Keep up the pressure against the Kavanaugh nomination!

The GOP is worried. They worry that the Kavanaugh nomination is driving women away, creating an even greater backlash against Republicans in the midterm elections.

From CNN.com:

Female opposition to Trump has already proven potent in races like the Virginia gubernatorial contest last year, when exit polls found that Democratic winner Ralph Northam won female voters by 22 percentage points amid a dramatic suburban swing in his favor compared to 2016 Virginia results.

"What has turned them off the Republican Party is not only the lewd behavior and things that were said by Donald Trump, but as much as anything that the entire Republican Party was willing to look the other way. I think women looked at that and they essentially said, '‘here's no consequences,’ said Alixandria Lapp, the president of The House Majority PAC, a super PAC with ties to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.

Today, let’s call our Senators and tell them that we’re not standing for a judge who has been hostile to issues concerning voting rights, womens’ reproductive rights, and who has had allegations of perjury and attempted rape brought against him. Call and leave voicemail to express your concerns!

ACTION: Call our Senators and leave voicemail opposing the Kavanaugh nomination AGAIN!

  • Sen. Patty Murray--DC 202-224-2621; Seattle 206-553-5545

  • Sen. Maria Cantwell--DC 202-224-3441; Seattle 206-220-6400

Sample Script:

"Hi, my name is [NAME] and I'm calling from [CITY, ZIP]. We cannot turn our backs on the allegations that have been made against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. We have a right to know the truth. In light of the 51-49 Republication majority in the Senate, please continue to work with your fellow Senators to defeat the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.”
