The U.S. Senate’s Judiciary Committee voted today by a party-line vote of 10 to 8 to report Judge Alito’s nomination favorably to the full Senate, which is set to begin debate tomorrow. Now is the time for every pro-family voter in Connecticut to make his or her voice heard!

Connecticut’s anti-family elites are putting enormous pressure on Senators Dodd and Lieberman to vote against Judge Alito. The state’s top pro-abortion activists held another event at the state capitol last week designed to influence our Senators’ votes:

[Lt. Gov. Kevin B.] Sullivan joined other supporters of abortion rights in calling on Connecticut’s Democratic U.S. senators, Joseph I. Lieberman and Christopher J. Dodd, to filibuster Alito’s nomination.

Left-wing pressure on Sen. Lieberman in particular–who may face a primary challenge from within his party–is beginning to have an effect:

The prospect of a challenge from Lamont is already changing Lieberman – who’s reinvented himself more often than [pop star] Madonna – back into a partisan Democrat. Lieberman even hinted to a group of liberal state legislators last month that he just might vote against Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito.

Senators Dodd and Lieberman can still be persuaded to do the right thing and vote to confirm Judge Alito. But they need to hear from each and every one of you, their pro-family constituents, immediately asking them to vote “yes” to confirm Judge Alito! Click on this link and also call the numbers below.

Remind our Senators that a panel of the American Bar Association voted unanimously to award its highest rating of “well qualified” to Judge Alito on its criteria of “integrity, professional competence and judicial temperament.” Tell them that a vote against Judge Alito is pure pro-abortion partisanship and the voters of Connecticut expect our Senators to be better than that! Here are those numbers:

Senator Chris Dodd
Connecticut: (800) 334-5341
Washington, D.C.: (202) 224-2823

Senator Joe Lieberman
Hartford: (800) 225-5605
Washington, D.C: (202) 224-4041
