Today’s Action: Fire the Senators who supported the impeachment cover-up

On November 3, we don’t want to *just* vote Trump out. We want to remove every one of his lap dogs who have supported and enabled his monstrous presidency the past four years.

Perhaps highest on that list are the Republican Senators who allowed an unprecedented no-witness coverup in place of a fair, transparent impeachment trial. This goes so far beyond just flipping the Senate: allowing these Republicans to stay in power is a constitutional crisis.

The good folks of Indivisible have launched the “Payback Project” to connect us to Democratic voters in nine states with vulnerable Republican Senators who allowed this disgrace.

Sign up to send text messages through Indivisible’s Payback Project, messaging progressive voters (and non-voters) in nine states with GOP Senators to encourage them to Get Out The Vote this November.

And yes, Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is one of those targets. The unscrupulous ring-leader, Trump’s right-hand, and grim overseer of the ‘Senate Graveyard’ where sensible policies go to die. McConnell long-held the position of “most unpopular Senator” by voters in his home state, only recently replaced by…

…”moderate” Susan Collins (R-ME), who voted against impeachment witnesses and is also on the list. And truly, all ten targets need to go, even without having yet won that coveted unpopularity contest. But voters in these states badly need our help to get every single unregistered Democrat ready to go this November. It’s not something that can happen overnight or even in the final few weeks – the work must be done NOW.

Don’t delay, and don’t regret inaction this November. Sign up today.

Register to send text messages to voters in nine states with Republican Senators through Indivisible’s Payback Project. Help achieve 100% voter registration amongst Democrats and turn these purple states blue.
