From Sheila:

I have just come from a meeting with two Kennedy aides – about Alito.

This is about a filibuster

Two free numbers for D.C Capitol Switchboard: 1-866-340-9281 and 1-866-340-9279

We must get enough Democratic votes for a filibuster

EVERYONE SHOULD CALL FEINSTEIN IN CA. SHE IS ON THE COMMITTEE

Each state must work on their Senator – those that voted for Roberts. Call, email, visit, etcetcetc. Probably we should all work on all these Sens, but they will often not pay attention to those out of state

Those up for election are especially vulnerable (of course, this precludes the e-voting machines)

Everyone should call Feingold – (this from us: 202-224-5323 – or the above numbers

As far as working on the Repubs, there is always Chafee, Snowe and Collins, but working on the Dems is better.

CHOICE IS THE KEY ISSUE we were told

Thanks

Sheila
