From Sheri:
Here is what we MUST do on Monday, January 30:
CALL MONDAY. (ALL VOICE MAIL BOXES FILLED NOW.) FAXING GOOD ANY TIME
The phones will be ringing off the hooks. Keep on trying. Try local numbers if you cannot get through to DC

At 4:30 PM on Monday, Jan 30, the Senate will vote on how to proceed – the cloture vote. We need 41 votes for a filibuster instead of an up or down vote on Alito.

Here are the senators confirmed (as of this writing) to support filibuster. Don’t bother to call them right now Kerry,Kennedy,Boxer,Clinton, Feinstein, Reid, Dodd, Feingold, Durbin, Obama, Stabenow, Schumer, Wyden, Sarbanes
There are rumors that there are many more. Stay tuned.

Please, if you can, forward this on to three other people.
