Dozens of New Mexicans descended on UNM’s Main Campus in Albuquerque Thursday with a simple message to Republican Senators in Congress: Do Your Job.
Members of Organizers for Action’s New Mexico chapter set up cutouts of Supreme Court justices, letting attendees take selfies and post their own message to Senate Republicans and thank you messages to New Mexico’s Senators, both Democrats, Tom Udall and Martin Heinrich.
“The American people deserve a judicial system that works — and the Senate must stop the obstruction, do their job and keep the Supreme Court fully functional. With over 300 days remaining in President Obama’s term, there is more than enough time for the Senate to hold hearings and give an up or down vote,” co-organizer Judy Smith said. “Thank you New Mexico Senators!” she added.
By end of the day, the OFA-NM team posted these results:
**80 commitments to thank NM Senators
**179 Signatures asking the US Senate to #DoYourJob
** 9 super OFA Volunteers
