Call Sen. McConnell

DemocratsJoin us.
Friend --

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:
  1. Pick up the phone and call Majority Leader Mitch McConnell at 202-224-2541. Tell him you want Chief Judge Garland to get a fair confirmation hearing, the sooner the better.
  2. Click here as soon as you've hung up the phone, and let us know how it went! We want to hear what they had to say so we can hold Republicans accountable to do their jobs and make sure they know there are consequences for not acting in the best interests of constituents like you.
This is representative democracy in action! How exciting is this? So take a minute and give Sen. McConnell a call, and don't forget to report back on what he had to say:

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,
