Call-In: Tell Your Democratic Senator to Say Yes to the Iran Deal

The Washington Post has compiled a "whip list" of where Senators currently stand on the Iran nuclear agreement. Fourteen Republican Senators have said that they will vote against the deal, but only one Senator – Dianne Feinstein, Dick Durbin, and Martin Heinrich – have said that they will definitely vote yes on the agreement.

We need at least 34 Senators to vote yes in order to secure a veto-proof majority — and your Democratic Senator is key. But anti-diplomacy forces are trying to pressure your Senator to vote against the deal – which is why they need to hear from you.

Call your Senator NOW at (202) 224-3121 and say

"I urge you to join Sens. Feinstein, Durbin, and Heinrich in publicly stating that you will vote yes on the Iran nuclear agreement."

When you’ve made your call, you can report it below.

If you haven’t signed our petition to Democrats in support of the deal, you can do that here:

Call-in: Tell Your Rep. to Stand with Other Dems on Iran Deal

Supporting President Obama’s successful effort to win a diplomatic agreement with Iran and prevent another war in the Middle East should be a no-brainer for Democrats – especially Democrats who have supported diplomacy with Iran in the past.

But it’s not, unfortunately, because AIPAC is on the warpath against the Iran nuclear deal.

In July 2013, Scott Peters (CA-52), Jim Himes (CT-04), Collin Peterson (MN-07), Bill Pascrell (NJ-09), Henry Cuellar (TX-28), Kyrsten Sinema (AZ-09), and Alcee Hastings (FL-20) all signed the Dent-Price letter urging renewed efforts to engage with Iran following the election of President Rouhani on a promise of renewed engagement with the West. But two months ago, when 150 House Democrats signed a letter expressing strong support for President Obama’s ongoing negotiations with Iran over its nuclear program, they did not join. That’s why these Representatives needs to hear from you now.

Call your representative now at (202) 224-3121. When you reach a staffer, you can say something like:

“I urge Rep. ______ to stand with other Democrats in support of President Obama’s agreement with Iran, and to pledge to vote against any Republican attempt to scuttle the deal.”

When you’ve made your call, please report it below.

Call-in: Tell Your Rep. to Stand with Progressives on Iran Deal

Supporting President Obama’s successful effort to win a diplomatic agreement with Iran and prevent another war in the Middle East should be a no-brainer for Democrats – especially progressive Democrats.

But it’s not, unfortunately, because AIPAC is on the warpath against the Iran nuclear deal. [1]

The Congressional Progressive Caucus has officially backed President Obama's Iran deal. But Reps. Lois Frankel (FL-22), Jerrold Nadler (NY-10), Carolyn Maloney (NY-12), Frank Pallone (NJ-06), who are all members of the CPC, have been quiet in the past when others were speaking up for diplomacy – that’s why they need to hear from you now.

Call your representative now at (202) 224-3121. When you reach a staffer, you can say something like:

“I urge Rep. ______ to stand with other Members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus in support of President Obama’s agreement with Iran, and to pledge to vote against any Republican attempt to scuttle the deal.”

When you’ve made your call, please report it below.

Call-in: Tell Grayson to support Iran deal

Representative Alan Grayson has been unusual among Florida Democrats in attacking the nuclear deal that President Obama and world leaders negotiated with Iran. [1] Even New York Senator Chuck Schumer, who is under tremendous pressure from groups opposed to the deal, has only said that he will thoroughly review the deal, rather than attacking it the way Grayson has. [2]

If you live in Florida, Alan Grayson wants to represent you, because he’s running for Florida’s open Senate seat. So Alan Grayson has good reason to care what you think.

Call Alan Grayson now at 202-225-9889. When you reach a staffer, say something like:

“As a Florida voter, I urge you to publicly support the diplomatic deal with Iran and vote against any Republican attempt to scuttle it.”

When you’ve made your call, you can report it below.
