URGENT: Call Your Senators This Morning

Two weeks ago in this newsletter, I laid out an 11-step plan for victory this November called “The American Eleven.” Each step centers on passing legislation that would return the Republican Party to the center-right — American values that twice elected Ronald Reagan and returned the House to Republicans in 1994 with the Contract with America.

Your response has been overwhelming and, most importantly, effective.

On Monday, I reported that the House had acted on several of the steps, including securing our border. The House passed the Secure Fence Act, a bill to establish more than 700 miles of fencing along the Southwest border and technology for “virtual fences” in other areas.

All your phone calls, letters and emails to your congressmen are working. Now it’s time to convince the Senate to act.

Don’t let Senate Democrats filibuster this important national security legislation!

This morning, the Senate will vote on cloture on the Secure Fence Act’s corresponding legislation. A successful vote for cloture is the only way Senate Republicans can prevent Democrats from filibustering a secure border.

Every Senator should have to vote YES or NO on this critical national security issue. Make it happen by calling your senators this morning and urging them to vote YES on cloture on the Secure Fence Act.

Your friend,

Newt Gingrich
