While you're making phone calls, don't forget to call your Democratic Senators

and thank them for their efforts and for representing you so well. I'm sure they like to hear that they're being supported, too. I just called my two, Warner and Kaine.

2. good point!

What the senators get, during their breaks, is a update on the number of their calls, as well as the number on either side.

So you needn't make long calls (or e-mails) since during the trial we only need the number.

4. Or say it with money

making campaign contributions gets noticed, even if it's $5 or even $3. Donate to Schiff, too!

5. Another reason to contact your Democratic senator:

They are give raw data on calls and emails during breaks.

Senators constantly talk with each other about their public support or disapproval.

So the information affects many other senators and their staffs (who also talk numbers constantly).

7. I just called the offices of Washington Senators Cantwell and Murray.

I told them to join Senate Democrats in hammering Trump's defense, and not to let them up off the mat.

I told them that I didn't want Washingtonians from east of the mountains (Trump country...) to be the only ones calling. The staffers laughed at that.

10. I just did and it was fun!

I am BLESSED with two fantastic senators so Iíve never called before, I blush to say, but I remembered that they might be getting calls from their rural constituents, so I picked up the phone. It was fun! They do fantastic work and I should have called way earlier to tell them so, just like itís fun to leave positive Yelp reviews.
