Take Action on Lieberman Now

News & Politics


The vote on Senator Lieberman's chairmanship will be held tomorrow. Even though it will take place behind closed doors and without a roll call vote, you can still make your voice heard by signing the Just Say No To Joe petition at FDL. Or, you could directly call a member of the Democratic Steering committee:

Debbie Stabenow, Michigan - Chairwoman (202) 224-4822

Harry Reid, Nevada (202) 224-3542

John Kerry, Massachusetts (202) 224-2742

Daniel Inouye, Hawaii (202) 224-3934

Robert Byrd, West Virginia (202) 224-3954

Edward Kennedy, Massachusetts (202) 224-4543

Joe Biden, Delaware (202) 224-5042

Patrick Leahy, Vermont (202) 224-4242

Chris Dodd, Connecticut (202) 224-2823

Tom Harkin, Iowa (202) 224-3254

Max Baucus, Montana (202) 224-2651

Richard Durbin, Illinois (202) 224-2152

Kent Conrad, North Dakota (202) 224-2043

Carl Levin, Michigan (202) 224-6221

Herbert Kohl, Wisconsin (202) 224-5653

Barbara Boxer, California (202) 224-3553

Hillary Clinton, New York (202) 224-4451

Jeff Bingaman, New Mexico (202) 224-5521

Mark Pryor, Arkansas (202) 224-2353

Even though he isn't on the committee, Natasha and I both called Senator Casey's office this morning, since he is our local Democrat, and all members of the Democratic caucus will vote on this one. Senator Casey's office said that he was undecided on how to vote, so clearly there is still time to make a difference. Also, I'm trying to get my family in Rochester and Syracuse to call Senators Clinton and Schumer. My main target is my popular 12-year old niece who was elected class President a couple years ago and recently tested as the most liberal member of her class in a Social Studies quiz. If she gets into it, that should mean a couple dozen more calls.

In the extended entry, you can find some suggested talking points for your call, culled from recent statements on Lieberman by Democratic Senators.
