With all the talk of trouble reaching Senate offices, let's not forget to hit the Senators where we might cynically think they really care - their campaign offices.  Additionally, when we call the PACs it doesn't matter if we're non-residents!

First of all the national leadership PACs need to hear from us, then the Senate campaign offices should hear from us also.

I've put together those I've already reached below, please add your input below and call and let your senators know, this is about princples!

Joseph I. Lieberman (D- CT), (860) 244-2006
Thomas R. Carper (D- DE), (302) 328-5774
Evan Bayh (D- IN), 202-326-0450*
Robert Menendez (D-NJ), 201-271-1161
Joseph R. Biden, Jr. (D- DE) , 202-547-2221*

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    Fax the word to FILIBUSTER instantly to twelve wavering Senators

    Call the Democrats (Mary Landrieu, Ken Salazar, Barack Obama, Tom Harkin) who oppose Alito but also said they oppose a filibuster. We must persuade them that a vote against Alito is meaningless if they don't support a filibuster.

    Senator Salazar (D-CO) 202-224-5852

    Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA) 202-224-5824 (If you can't get through the Washington number, look up the Senator's District Office numbers and fax here: http://capwiz.com/...)


    Senator Barack Obama Phone: 202-224-2854 District Offices: Chicago: 312-886-3506 Marion: 618-997-2402 Springfield: 217-492-5089

    Second : Call your own Democratic Senator: 888-355-3588 or 888-818-6641. If you can't get through, look up the Senator's District Office numbers and fax here: http://capwiz.com/...

    Third : Unbelievably, three Democrats (Ben Nelson, Tim Johnson and Robert Byrd) support Alito! Tell them to either support filibuster or at least "don't get in the way." Sen. Ben Nelson (D-NE) 202-224-6551 Sen. Robert Byrd (D-WV) 202-224-3954 Sen. Tim Johnson (D-SD) 202-224-5842

    888-355-3588 or 888-818-6641. If you can't get through, look up the Senator's District Office number in your phone book or here: http://capwiz.com/...

    Fourth: Call the "Red State" Democrats: (Message same as above -- "No" is meaningless) Tom Carper (DE)

    Kent Conrad (ND)

    Byron Dorgan (ND)

    Mark Pryor (AR)

    Fifth : Call these "Blue State" and pro-choice Republicans: (Message: A "Unitary Executive" is dangerous to balance of powers--please do not get in the way of a filibuster.) Lincoln Chafee (RI)

    Susan Collins (ME)

    Lisa Murkowsky (AK)

    Gordon Smith (OR)

    Olympia Snowe (ME)

    Ted Stevens (AK)

    For extra credit, call all of the 2008 Presidential candidates who are sitting Senators--Evan Bayh, Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, Russ Feingold, and John Kerry--and tell them to either LEAD THE FILIBUSTER or KISS YOUR SUPPORT GOODBYE. 888-355-3588 or 888-818-6641. If you can't get through, look up the Senator's District Office number in your phone book or here: http://capwiz.com/...

    You can also send that message to the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (202-224-2447) and the Democratic National Committee (202-863-8000).

    Polls and public opinion are another way to apply pressure -- get word out about why Alito needs to be filibustered:

    Write a letter to the editor of your local newspaper. (Click here)

    People for the American Way has collected nearly 65,000 signatures to send to the Senate, please add yours: Save the Court Petition

    John Kerry has endorsed this anti-Alito petition, signers' names will be read into the Congressional Record:http://www.johnkerry.com/...

    •  Heavy Artillery for the filibuster fight (none)
      On a weekend, you may have difficulty reaching a real live person with whom to talk when you call the various senators' offices, but you can always reach their fax machines!

      Here is a flyer (in PDF form) that should be faxed to senators who are still sitting on the fence. Click on the graphic at left, or go to this diary for more information.

      Keep up the fight! We must not lose this one!
