Can Senate leaders ignore 10,000 letters?

Dear carlos,Judicial Vacancy Crisis

With the debt fight nearing an end, the Senate is about to go on its August recess. Incredibly, they may go on vacation while dozens of judicial nominees cool their heels waiting for a final vote.

By the end of today, the Senate is likely to have decided how many — if any — judges will get confirmed before the August recess.

We have just hours to act. Help us send 10,000 letters to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and Majority Leader Harry Reid before the end of the day. Make sure they get the message that the Senate must act now!

Last week, the U.S. Senate confirmed only one judge to a lifetime federal appointment, while leaving 24 more nominees waiting. Now, instead of moving to end the crisis in our courts, the Senate is getting ready to go home for its August recess. They could wrap up the debt deal and fly home as early as this afternoon… and they could do it without voting on a single judicial nominee.

That's unacceptable. Help us get the word to Capitol Hill today: Demand that Senate leaders schedule votes on all pending judicial nominees before the senators get their vacation!

P.S. Activists like you have already helped us send more than 6,500 messages to Senate leadership. Will you forward this email to five of your friends and ask them to help us reach our goal of 10,000 messages by the end of the day?
