Just called both of my senators to urge them to vote against Trump’s wingnut SCOTUS nominee. I feel confident that Rubio will vote YES and Nelson will vote NO and Kavanaugh will be confirmed anyway. That’s what happens when people 1) don’t vote, 2) are prevented from voting, or 3) consider their franchise a form of performance art.
That said, I was encouraged that I wasn’t able to get through to an intern and had to leave a message for both senators. That means people are calling. Maybe give your senators a jingle too? The US Capitol has a main switchboard that will connect you if you don’t have your senator in your contacts list. The number is (202) 224-3121.
