Fossil fuel-backed Senator Joe Manchin is on the verge of becoming the top-ranking Democrat on the pivotal Senate Energy and Natural Resources (ENR) Committee, which would be a complete disaster. Tell Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer to pick ANYONE BUT MANCHIN for ranking member of the Senate ENR Committee. Let's make sure that the phones at Senator Schumer's office are ringing off the hook.
Call Sen. Schumer's DC office at (202) 224-6542 using the sample script provided, or the talking points below. Then, be sure to tell us how the call went.
- Senator Manchin as ranking member of the Energy Committee would send the exact wrong message about Democrat’s commitment to climate change.
- Senator Manchin is in the pocket of the fossil fuel industry and is the WRONG CHOICE to lead the Democrats in standing up to the disastrous Trump "energy dominance" agenda.
- Senator Manchin has a 45% LCV lifetime score on environmental votes – he has no business leading the Democrats on energy matters.
- Senator Manchin has received nearly $1 million in contributions from the fossil fuel industry. He is in the pocket of Dirty Energy and shouldn’t be the face of the Democrats on energy policy.
If the phone lines are busy, or the office is closed, please leave a message. If the voicemail is full, try calling back later. You can also tweet at Sen. Schumer at @SenSchumer, and/or fill out the webform on his website here.
