Urge Senators Carper and Coons to Support the Filibuster of Neil Gorsuch

This petition had 117 supporters


Senators Carper and Coons,
We petition you today, in light of incredible and extraordinary circumstances, to support the Democratic Party's filibuster of the nomination of Judge Neil M Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.

Under more stable political conditions we may understand your desire to strike some sort deal in the matter of the nomination of Judge Neil M Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. However, we think you would agree that this is not a stable and safe political environment.  We strongly urge you to resist any effort to confirm Judge Gorsuch. This includes not providing your vote for cloture and voting no on confirmation should the filibuster be broken by other Democrats.

Whereas the President is under FBI investigation for collusion with an adversary county during the election, and

Whereas Merrick Garland was not even given a proper hearing we strongly urge you to resist any effort to confirm Judge Gorsuch.

Politico has reported that unnamed Democratic sources said that after minority leader Schumer announced a filibuster on this matter Senator Coons was part of a group “of senators seeking a solution that would avoid” said filibuster. If this report is accurate we respectfully request you cease this approach.

We appreciate that this requested course of action could be described as “obstructionist.” This is unfortunate but necessary. The federal government is quickly deteriorating into a dangerous embarrassment. Total obstruction is the only appropriate response. This is what we, your fellow Delawareans, expect.
