Senator Roy Blunt needs to hear from you in Missouri! Call 1-888-877-2040 and ask him to vote to uphold the 60-vote standard


Kevin –

Thousands of you have called, emailed, shared your stories, and rallied in opposition to President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch and his big-money agenda over the last few weeks.

And last weekend, in more than a dozen cities around the country, thousands of people rallied to say: “We object!”

44 Senators have said NO to a Supreme Court justice who will side with the wealthy and powerful and who will weaken our democracy. That’s enough to block Gorsuch from reaching the traditional 60-vote threshold for Supreme Court nominees, and YOU helped us get there.

We’ve come so far, but with Republican leaders in the Senate threatening to “go nuclear” and change the rules so that Gorsuch doesn’t have to meet the 60-vote standard, we can’t let up now. We need you to help us hold senators accountable, by calling them and telling them to oppose Gorsuch and uphold the traditional 60-vote threshold for Supreme Court nominees.

Senator Roy Blunt needs to hear from you! Call 1-888-877-2040 and ask him to vote to uphold the 60-vote standard. You can say: “I’m asking the senator to refuse to support changing long-standing Senate rules to remove the traditional 60-vote threshold for Supreme Court nominees. If Neil Gorsuch can’t be confirmed by following the rules, then the nominee should be changed, not the rules.”

Again and again, Gorsuch has sided with the wealthy and powerful. He would make it harder for everyday Americans’ voices to be heard in our elections, and make it easier for billionaires and corporations to spend millions to buy the policies they want.

By standing together, we can stop Gorsuch – but we need to act now! Even if you’ve already called Senator Blunt and asked him to oppose Gorsuch, he needs to hear from you again.

Call Senator Blunt now at 1-888-877-2040 and tell him: Change the nominee, not the rules!

Thank you,
