Both the Senate and House of Representatives are home this week! We need to show up and tell our elected officials that the majority of their constituents do not agree with the left wing protesters who are trying to destroy President Trump. Today is the day to visit your Senator’s local district office to show your support for President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch. If you have planned an event outside of the office, make sure you add it to our website! You can also look here for events that others have planned. Finally, if there are no events (like sign waving) happening outside the office, please take today to stop in to deliver a letter to your Senator. We have a sample letter that you can use!
Why is this so important? Remember the townhalls of 2009, when we fought tooth and nail against Obamacare? Now the tables have turned and progressives are the ones showing up at townhalls1 and at local district offices2, and the mainstream media is all too eager to magnify and celebrate dissent when carried out by left wing activists. This means progressives are the ones getting their message out3, and in front of our elected officials. Our mantra back then was, “when we show up, we win.” It is now time for us to show up again in support of President Trump and Judge Gorsuch!
Progressive activists, Democrats, and their friends in the media are trying their best to delegitimize not only the election of President Trump, but also his right to pick a replacement for Antonin Scalia. They are already pushing the Senate to reject Judge Gorsuch – and any other nominee President Trump would offer – because they believe that the it was Obama’s seat to fill, and on top of that, they believe that President Trump stole the election and therefore does not get to fill it.
We know all of that is RIDICULOUS. So let’s show up and make sure all of our Senators understand that America supports President Trump and Neil Gorsuch.
I’m showing up,
P.S. Members of Congress could learn the art of listening from President Trump.

Grassroots Lobbying Day on Capitol Hill, March 15
On March 15th, we will partner with FreedomWorks to host a grassroots lobbying day on Capitol Hill. Office visits are one of the most effective ways to make our voices heard in Washington, D.C. and to hold our elected officials accountable. The primary focus of our lobbying day will be on repealing ObamaCare and confirming Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, although we may add other topics as the date approaches. The committee hearing for Judge Gorsuch is set for March 20, which increases the importance of us being in DC together making our voices heard on March 15. Mark the date on your calendar!
