Hey Ohio people—Senator Rob Portman is still undecided about whether he will vote to confirm Betsy DeVos for Secretary of Education. If you think DeVos is a bad choice, give Portman a call and tell him what you think.
Here are the numbers for his offices:
- DC: 202-224-3353
- Columbus: 614-469-6774
- Cincinnati: 513-684-3265
- Cleveland: 216-522-7095
- Toledo: 419-259-3895
Here's all you need to say:
Hi, my name is XXXX and I live in XXXX. I don't need a response. I am calling to ask the Senator to vote no on Betsy DeVos's nomination. Thanks!
That is literally all you need to say. The DC lines are probably busy, but it's worth starting with that one. I usually work my way down the list, leaving voicemails if I have to, but trying to find a live human.
These calls really do work, and it's super-quick and easy to do.
