Lindsey Graham and Law of the Sea Treaty
I still don’t see SC Senator Graham on this list, do you?
Can the US Senate act in time to prevent the United States from ratifying the Obama-favored United Nations International Maritime Treaty? The treaty will fail if 34 votes can be mustered against it, as a two-thirds majority is required for passage. Two more senators, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) are the latest senators to sign a letter to Harry Reid saying they will vote against it, bringing the total of senators opposed to 30.
below is a list of the senators who oppose the treaty. If your senator isnвЂ™t on the list, you can contact him/her and demand a vote against the treaty.
The senators opposed are Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.), Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.), Roy Blunt (R-Mo.), Pat Roberts (R-Kansas), David Vitter (R-La.), Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), John Cornyn (R-Texas), Jim DeMint (R-S.C.), Tom Coburn (R-Okla.), John Boozman (R-Ark.), Rand Paul (R-Ky.), Jim Risch (R-Idaho), Mike Lee (R-Utah), Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), Mike Crapo (R-Idaho), Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), John Barrasso (R-Wyo.), Richard Shelby (R-Ala.), John Thune (R-S.D.), Richard Burr (R-N.C.), Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.), Dan Coats (R-Ind.), John Hoeven (R-N.D.), Roger Wicker (R-Miss.), Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), Jerry Moran (R-Kansas), Dean Heller (R-Nev.), Pat Toomey (R-Penn.), Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), and Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.).
What if Graham’s office is paying attention to callers, and what if they determine if they get 1,909 calls Graham will vote against it, and what if they’re stuck at 1,908 and you haven’t called?
