Via email blast from the notorious anti-LGBT hate group leader Brian Brown:
Last week I reported that President Joe Biden had privately committed to Sen. Chuck Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi that he favored blowing up the Senate filibuster rule that has blocked much of his agenda from advancing – including the disastrous Equality Act.
Further, he told them he would make calls to “centrist” Democrat Senators to push to break the filibuster. Now yesterday, Sen. Ted Cruz appeared on Fox News Channel’s Maria Bartiromo’s show to say that the filibuster rule and thus the future of the country came down to two Senators – Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Sen. Krysten Sinema of Arizona.
We’ve been able to stop the Equality Act from passing largely because of the Senate filibuster rule and our enormous grassroots mobilization which has delivered over 2 million messages to members of the Senate from Americans opposed to the legislation.
But with so much on the line and our fate resting in the hands of just two Senators, we’ve really got to ramp up our opposition. That’s why we’re asking every NOM supporter for financial help now so that we can increase the level of our opposition campaign, especially in Arizona and West Virginia. Please help us today.
We need to buttress our opposition to the Equality Act with all Senators, but especially so with Krysten Sinema in Arizona and Joe Manchin in West Virginia. Our team is putting in place plans right now to do just that, but we need your help to execute on these plans
Even if you have already contributed to NOM this year, I ask that you act right away to help NOM increase our grassroots efforts to stop the Equality Act from passing. We are in an escalating battle. We need to act now while we can still prevail.
Hey Manchin! Hey Sinema! The extremist right wing is fundraising in support of you. Still think you’re not dancing on GQP puppet strings and the Democratic parties’ grave?
Because we do.
