Tallahassee, FL – As the Senate Judiciary Committee continues hearings on Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch this week, Concerned Veterans for America (CVA) is dropping a second round of direct mail in Florida, asking citizens to urge Senator Bill Nelson (D-FL) to confirm Judge Neil Gorsuch without delay. So far, Senator Nelson has failed to support Gorsuch’s Supreme Court nomination – despite having supported Gorsuch’s nomination to the Tenth Circuit Court in 2006.
Each piece of mail directs citizens to call a CVA switchboard where they are informed about Neil Gorsuch’s record and then patched through to Senator Nelson’s office. The group will also drop mail in targeted markets throughout Indiana, North Dakota, West Virginia, Missouri, Colorado, Maine, and Montana.

Concerned Veterans for America (CVA) Florida Coalitions Director Diego Echeverri issued the following statement:
“This week Judge Neil Gorsuch has continued to demonstrate the kind of integrity, independence, and neutrality before the law that he will bring to the Supreme Court bench if he is confirmed. Gorsuch’s dedication to protecting the Constitution has garnered the respect of political leaders on both sides of the aisle and Floridians of all walks of life who are stepping out every day in his support. Since Gorsuch was announced as our next Supreme Court nominee, CVA has been mobilizing our grassroots army in this fight – and we will continue doing so until the moment that the Senate has confirmed Gorsuch to the bench. We urge Senator Nelson to avoid political theatre this week and to help drive a quick, clean, and thorough hearing process.”
Last month, CVA launched its first wave of direct mail in seven targeted states, including Florida.
CVA is engaged in a unique and unprecedented grassroots effort to help confirm Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court bench. The group has made over 35,000 calls to constituents in Florida asking them to contact Senator Nelson and urge him to confirm Gorsuch without delay. The group has also launched web ads and is promoting a digital tool which allows Florida constituents to contact Senator Nelson directly via Facebook, Twitter, and email.
