“Hold the Nomination” Letter Writing Campaign
So many of us are left reeling by the space left by the passing of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. If the president pushes a Supreme Court nomination before the election, Montana has two Senators casting a vote either for or against that nominee.
For the good of the country and the court, the Senate should not act on any nomination until after the president elected in November is inaugurated, whether it be Trump or former Vice President Joe Biden. The Supreme Court faces a crisis of confidence. Despite the admirable efforts of Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. to build consensus, the court is widely viewed as a partisan institution which reflects the poisonous partisanship that has infected the Supreme Court confirmation process. Senate action on a Trump nominee so close to the election — and in the shadow of the Senate’s refusal in 2016 to act on Obama’s nominee — would exacerbate partisan divisions and plunge the court even further into partisan politics. So, too, would confirming a justice in a lame duck session if Trump does not win reelection.
We need people to call, to write, text, to visit our Senators, especially Daines, to let their voices be heard, because that is what will make the difference.
Join us in this Zoom meeting for an hour of writing to remind Senator Daines that his constituents want a Supreme Court that will protect the rights of all Americans.
