Urgent Filibuster Details: Via Bob Fertik
We need to stop George Bush from getting 60 Senators to end the filibuster on Monday at 4:30 p.m.
That means we must convince 41 Senators to either support a filibuster or stay away from the Senate on Monday, preferably by visiting maimed soldiers at Walter Reed Hospital.
Below is a list of 44 Democrats, 1 Independent, and 3 Republicans whose support is possible - the "Alito 48."
Here are the "Filibuster 48" with their direct phone numbers. You can also use these toll-free numbers (and ask for the Senators by name): 888-355-3588 or 888-818-6641.
Ask the question clearly: will Senator X support John Kerry's filibuster of Judge Alito, or will (s)he oppose Kerry's filibuster?
We need a firm yes or no - be polite but persistent.
