Call Sen. McConnell
We've made some progress in the past few weeks, sort of. Because folks like you across the country made their voices heard loud and clear, 16 Republican senators have agreed to meet with Chief Judge Merrick Garland and discuss his nomination to the Supreme Court. That's better, of course, than an outright refusal to do their jobs, like we've heard so far from the likes of Mitch McConnell and Chuck Grassley, but it's still only doing the bare minimum of what we should expect from our lawmakers.
So we still have a long way to go before Chief Judge Garland becomes Justice Garland, and it's going to take each and every one of us to get there. Now, I say that a lot -- and I always mean it, I promise. But this time is a little different. Instead of asking you to add your name or pitch in with a contribution, we're asking you to do two easy things:
I can't wait to hear from great supporters like you all across the country. This is really truly what it is going to take to get this show on the road, and I'm so glad to have you with us on this. Thank you so much for your help.
All the best,
Amy K. Dacey
Chief Executive Officer
