Today Republicans denied the will of the American people by confirming a Supreme Court justice through an illegitimate process—all in their effort to gut the Affordable Care Act and strip health care from millions with pre-existing conditions. We won’t forget this.

This rushed confirmation is more than just a hypocritical power grab. It’s more than an effort to deny voters a say. It's an assault on your healthcare, LGBTQ rights, a woman's right to choose, voting rights, clean water and air, and more. The new Congress must fight back.

Amy Coney Barrett's nomination is illegitimate. I vote no.

Hey @brianschatz  can you check - if we raised money for Jaime Harrison tonight could he put the money to good use down the home stretch? I bet we could do $250K tonight to beat Graham.

If the polls aren't tightening since the debate—and with 62 million people having voted—we're sort of getting to the point where the only way Trump can win is with a major polling error, bigger than in 2016 (or if the election is stolen somehow).

Today is a terrible day for our democracy and for the fundamental rights of the American people. Nothing about this process is normal or legitimate.

Corruption oozed out of former @EPA  head Scott Pruitt’s office like toxic sludge – and things are no better under former coal lobbyist @EPAScottPruittAWheeler . It’s long past time for the EPA to be led by someone who actually believes in environmental protection.
