We just recently updated you about how a minority of Senators have continued to block yes-or-no votes for judicial nominees, some who have been waiting for months. Yesterday, in a bold move for justice, Senate Majority Leader Reid filed cloture on 17 nominations, in order to move them one step closer to a yes-or-no vote on the Senate floor. Your Senators need to hear from you to ensure that these nominees receive a yes-or-no vote.
CALL YOUR SENATORS AT 1-866-338-5720 TODAY! Tell them:
- I am your constituent and I live…
- I am calling to urge the Senator to allow yes-or-no votes on all 17 judicial nominees for whom Senate Majority Leader Reid filed cloture petitions.
- With 83 judgeships sitting empty, 35 of which are considered judicial emergencies, the Senate’s continued failure to act is unconscionable.
- Americans deserve to have a federal judiciary that is functioning at full capacity.
Thank you for continuing to work to advance the rights of women and families, including their access to the courts.
