Day 2 on DADT: Keep up the pressure on Target Senators

Posted this target list from SLDN yesterday — and it’s still operative. I’ve added twitter accounts for the Senators that have them.

Based on the schedule, which is always subject to change, the vote should occur around noon.

Again, the switchboard at the Senate is 202-224-3121. If you live in the state’s of any of these Senators call them ASAP. Tell them to put equality over procedure.

As we noted yesterday, Senator Collins is key — and that became very, very clear yesterday. She’s at the center of negotiations. This is her moment

The target list:
