Our senator, Chris Coons, is refusing to support the filibuster against Trump’s SCOTUS nominee, Neil Gorsuch. He thinks it would be unfair if we used the same weapons of obstruction that Mitch McConnell used on Obama and Merrick Garland. This would be understandable from a red/purple state senator, but here in Delaware there is no strategic advantage to be gained by allowing the GOP to steamroll us. If we make no demands, we get no concessions. If Senate Democrats don’t fight back as hard and as dirty as the Republicans fought us, we send a message to Mitch McConnell, Donald Trump, and all right wing politicians that we are weak and deserve to be ignored and excluded. They will not worry about the consequences when they abuse their power further.
We need 41 votes to sustain a filibuster. Right now we have 39.
