Step 5: Call Your Senators: Republican Script

It’s time to mobilize. Need to Impeach is circulating a script for calling your Senator to oppose Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court Confirmation, but if you live in a swing state like I do, the script isn’t much help when you’re talking to a Republican Senate office.

Here’s what I plan to say when I call the Republican Senator in my state – and you can say when you call:

Lisa Murkowski: 202-224-6665
Susan Collins: 202-224-2523
Jeff Flake: 202-224-4521
Lindsey Graham: (202) 224-5972

I’m calling to urge Senator [insert Senator name] to vote NO on Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation.

Brett Kavanaugh’s appearance on September 27 made it clear that he doesn’t have the temperament required of a Supreme Court Judge. As a voter in [your state], I found Dr. Blasey Ford’s testimony to be convincing and credible, and I am in support of an FBI investigation.

However, whatever the results of the FBI investigation may be, I believe that Kavanaugh perjured himself yesterday. Regardless of whether you believe Dr. Blasey Ford, he has shown himself to be a liar with no regard for the process or the laws.

In addition, I’m deeply troubled by Mr. Kavanaugh’s positions on the protections afforded to people with pre-existing conditions guaranteed by the Affordable Care Act. He does not appear to be in favor of American Indian tribes’ rights, something that is important to me as a voter.

Not only this, Kavanaugh believes that sitting presidents should be exempt from criminal prosecution and investigation. If Senator [name] is in favor of this, as a concerned citizen, I will work to make sure that [he/she/they] will not serve another term as an elected official in my state.

Can I count on the Senator to vote NO against Brett Kavanaugh?
