My filibuster last night - and what's next:

Our resistance is strong, and your support makes us even stronger.
 
Last night, with Senate Republicans rushing to confirm Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, I took a stand for the American people and the integrity of our democracy. For about 15 and a half hours, I spoke on the Senate floor to filibuster the Republican ploy to steal a Supreme Court seat and install a right-wing activist judge.
 
I was so heartened to hear from hundreds of thousands of progressives who stood with me in this fight for our values. We can’t give up now: Chip in right now to help us keep building the resistance!
 
Ahead, the Republicans have a choice.  Do they change the rules with the “nuclear option” and force this ideologue onto the Court?  Or do they pull back from the brink and bring America together?
 
We are making history and leading the resistance that America needs in the age of Donald Trump. We will not back down, we will not give up, and we will not let Trump win.
 
Donate now and let’s keep up the fight for our values!
 
Onward!
