Today’s Action: Every Democrat and One Republican to #SaveSCOTUS

Hearings on Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, are planned to begin on September 4 — just two months before midterm elections. The decision, while an uphill battle, is far from over.

Although most of the Democratic caucus in the Senate have made strong statements opposing Kavanaugh, eight Democrats from primarily red states are still undecided and need to be reminded of Democratic values. Meanwhile, Republican so-called moderates Susan Collins (R-ME), Lisa Murkowsky (R-AK), and Jeff Flake (R-AZ) have NOT yet made statements that they will support Kavanaugh…so there’s still a chance to sway them.

We need every Democrat and one Republican to vote NO to stop Trump’s nomination. Check your Senator’s stance. Then, email or call your Senator and urge them to stand up for Roe v. Wade, the Trump-Russia investigation, and voter rights by voting NO on Kavanaugh.

A dangerous choice for the Supreme Court, Kavanaugh:

  • Wrote that a President should be exempt from criminal investigation while in office…which many believe is precisely why Trump has chosen him
  • Upheld discriminatory voter ID laws in South Carolina, blocking an estimated 80,000 people of color from voting, and is strongly opposed by the NAACP
  • Opposes even the most common sense safeguards on semi-automatic weapons, calling any restriction unconstitutional
  • Poses a major threat to Roe v. Wade and all abortion rights
  • Believes net neutrality violates internet providers’ freedom of speech and said he would rule any net neutrality regulations, even if they were laws passed by Congress

To sum up, he’s racist, trigger-happy, corporate-friendly…and against the Trump-Russia investigation.

We’ll repeat it: every Democrat and one Republican required to #SaveSCOTUS.

Check your Senator’s position. Then, email or call (202.224.3121) your Senator and urge them to stand up for the Russia investigation, net neutrality, gun safety and more by voting NO against Kavanaugh.
