Rally Today to Protect the Filibuster - Contact Pro-Choice Republicans

Reported by Marie Therese - April 27, 2005

Members of MoveOn.org are sponsoring rallies across the country today as part of an effort to show support for the filibuster. To find a rally in your neck of the woods go MoveOn.org's website and enter your zip code to find a gathering near you. There are some "soft Republicans," ones whose votes might be changed if they believe there is enough popular support for maintaining a 200-year-old TRADITION in the Senate. Click here for a website that will link you to the contact pages for: Lincoln Chaffee (RI), Susan Collins (ME), Lisa Murkowski (Alaska), Gordon Smith (OR), Olympia Snowe (ME), Arlen Specter (PA), Ted Stevens (Alaska) and John Warner (VA). These seven Senators are all pro-choice Republicans. Although most Senators read and respond only to messages from their own constituencies, this vote affects the future of the balance of power in the Senate. So go ahead. Keep it short and sweet! Let them know they have support outside their home turf.
