Marriage Supporter — Judge Neil Gorsuch is one of the most qualified, accomplished judges ever to be nominated to the US Supreme Court. The legal community, including the American Bar Association, has resoundingly praised his intellect, temperament and judicial record. Despite this, Democrats have pledged to mount a partisan filibuster to deny him confirmation, the first time in the history of the nation that the filibuster has been used in a partisan manner to derail a Supreme Court nomination. That is why it is time for the US Senate to change the rules, invoking the so-called "nuclear option" so that Supreme Court nominees are confirmed on a straight up or down vote, just as judicial nominees to lower federal courts are confirmed.
Please act today to urge your US Senators to vote to change the rules so that Judge Gorsuch is confirmed to the Supreme Court.
Judge Neil Gorsuch is an extraordinary nominee to our highest Court, an intellectual giant and a proven pro-family conservative. It is imperative that he be confirmed to our highest Court.
We are very pleased with the outstanding leadership that Senator Mitch McConnell has exhibited in managing the Gorsuch confirmation. He has tried his best to develop a bi-partisan coalition in support of Judge Gorsuch – and three Democrats have said they will vote to confirm him. But because of the partisan intransigence of so many Senate Democrats and their commitment to mount the first ever partisan filibuster of a Supreme Court nominee, Senator McConnell must now move forward to lead the Senate in changing its rules so that Gorsuch, and all future Supreme Court nominees can be confirmed on a straight majority vote.
The Gorsuch confirmation vote is scheduled for Friday. It's imperative that Senator McConnell and every sitting Senate Republican know that you want Judge Gorsuch confirmed to the US Supreme Court. That's why I am asking that in addition to contacting your Senators, please urgently sign NOM's petition. Senator McConnell will be immediately notified that you are in his corner in urging the confirmation of Judge Gorsuch.
As you know, the path to reversing the illegitimate, anti-constitutional ruling of the Supreme Court redefining marriage begins with the confirmation of Judge Gorsuch. Please sign our petition adding your name in support of confirming Judge Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.
PS – After you contact your US Senators to urge them to support Judge Gorsuch, then sign our petition adding your name urging Senator McConnell and his Republican members to "go nuclear" to secure Judge Gorsuch's confirmation. Thank you!
