Call Your Senator to Block Rex Tillerson’s Nomination for Secretary of State

Rex Tillerson, who was until-recently the CEO of Exxon-Mobil, has significant ties to Putin and Russia, and who believes whatever is convenient to him about climate change at any given time, has been nominated for Secretary of State. Luckily, there are Senators on both sides of the aisle who have voiced their concerns at his candidacy, so blocking his nomination has a decent chance at being successful.

The first (and hopefully only step) is making sure that his nomination doesn’t pass out of committee – the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, to be specific. If your senator is on this list, CALL THEM and let them know that you want them to reject Tillerson’s nomination:

  • Chairman, Bob Corker
  • James E. Risch
  • Marco Rubio
  • Ron Johnson
  • Jeff Flake
  • Cory Gardner
  • David Perdue
  • Johnny Isakson
  • Rand Paul
  • John Barrasso
  • Ranking, Ben Cardin
  • Barbara Boxer
  • Bob Menendez
  • Jeanne Shaheen
  • Christopher Coons
  • Tom Udall
  • Chris Murphy
  • Tim Kaine
  • Edward J. Markey

If your senator is not on this list, call them anyway and ask them to publicly denounce Tillerson as the choice for Secretary of State and ensure that his nomination doesn’t pass the Senate as a whole if it does pass out of committee.
