Philadelphia, PA – Ahead of the expected Senate floor vote on the Supreme Court nomination next week, Concerned Veterans for America (CVA) is dropping a wave of pro-Gorsuch direct mail targeted at Senator Bob Casey (D-PA).
“Judge Neil Gorsuch will protect the freedoms you fought to defend. Don’t let Bob Casey stand in the way,” the mailers read.
CVA mailer targeting Senator Casey over Gorsuch’s confirmation.
Senator Casey recently affirmed his commitment joining Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) in filibustering Judge Gorsuch.
CVA Executive Director Mark Lucas issued the following statement:
“Senator Casey’s decision to stand with Chuck Schumer instead of his constituents will prove to be a bad one. Gorsuch is a qualified, experienced, and fair jurist – there is no reasonable excuse for Casey’s obstructive behavior. Pennsylvanians deserve to see this vacancy filled as soon as possible and CVA activists will continue urging Casey to do the right thing until the moment Gorsuch is confirmed to the bench.”
A new Huffington Post/YouGov poll shows Americans want Gorsuch confirmed by a 17-point margin.
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 thousands of calls to constituents Pennsylvania, asking them to contact Senator Casey and urge him to confirm Gorsuch without delay. The group has also previously launched web ads, two other waves of direct mail, and is promoting a digital tool which allows constituents to contact Senator Casey directly via Facebook, Twitter, and email.
Most recently, CVA led a coalition of 56 major conservative groups – including Heritage Action, Judicial Crisis Network, and Americans for Tax Reform – and sent a letter to the Senate in Gorsuch’s support.
