Republican Senators Set To Filibuster

My colleagues on this site will probably know more about this than me, but I wanted to offer this bit of info, or offer a reminder if someone else has mentioned it and I simply didn't see it.

The 14 Republican Senators WILL hold firm regarding a filibuster in the Senate. Nineteen (19) votes are needed in order to sustain a filibuster. IF WE can convince 5 Democrat Senators to join our 14 Republican Senators we can STOP this assault on our families. PLEASE MAKE THESE CALLS. With your help, we CAN MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE!

On the one hand, Sen. Nathaniel Exum (D-24), Prince George's County, is one of the most liberal and loyal Democrats in the Senate. And he has supported some tax increases.

On the other hand, he seems very sensitive to criticism on tax issues. Bring up tax issues in meeting with him and he will most often jump to point out that he didn't support this, or voted against that.

When the General Assembly voted a few years ago to force a telephone tax on Prince Georgians, only two Senators were opposed--Mooney and Exum.

So, it's probably a long shot, but Sen. Exum might be worth calling.
