Call Right Now to Prevent Backroom Deal on Judicial Filibusters

Word out of Washington, D.C., in the last hour is that a "compromise" deal is close to being finalized that would allow Democrats to continue hijacking the Constitution by filibustering any judicial nominee whose views they oppose. One of the chief architects of the deal is Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C. -- and he needs to hear from thousands of Americans RIGHT NOW that all attempts to broker such a deal must be stopped.

The GOP leadership has come up with a sensible plan to restore Senate tradition by returning to 51 the number of votes needed to confirm a judicial nominee -- and that's the plan Graham and his colleagues should support.
Please take a moment -- no matter what state you live in -- to call as many of Sen. Graham's office numbers below as you can and relay this message: "No backroom deals with the liberals that would allow more judicial filibusters in the future. Support the constitutional option to end the Democrats' unprecedented filibuster of President Bush's nominees to the federal bench. It's the right thing to do."
