GOP senator who supposedly have already committed to vote to
unblock are Senators Scott Brown (MA), Susan Colins (ME), and Lisa

Find a hook in the contents of you email. The hook must be truthful.
Otherwise, it'll ruin the reputation of the AsAm community. Examples of
hooks are:
1) I am a voter in your state, or I used to live in your state. Give address.
2) I have relatives and friends living in your state. Or I contributed to
your campaigns. Or I am a Republican/Dem. (Note:
Otherwise we ruin our community's reputation.)
3) We met. Specify when and where.
4) I usually vote R/D. But I am really unhappy about your Party
blocking judicial nominees for partisan politics.

Mention that you are an 80-20 supporter. Get the GOP senators accustomed
to knowing 80-20.

Goodwin Liu came from Georgia. That counts with GA senators. So 1f6 I hope a
lot of AsAms in Georgia will email. The more the two political parties
hear from us, the more they will pay attention to AsAms. Most AsAms
don't know that interconnection. 80-20 knows. Together we shall
overcome.

Respectfully,
