My name is [NAME] and I’m calling to ask Senator Rubio to vote NO when Rex Tillerson’s nomination comes to the floor for a full vote. I’m very concerned about Mr. Tillerson’s lack of foreign policy or senior military experience. But worse, Mr. Tillerson’s close business ties with Russian President Vladimir Putin and prior opposition to sanctions leave me questioning whether he would effectively defend American national security interests. We need a Secretary of State that puts our interests, safety and wellbeing before their own personal interests and agenda. I believe Rex Tillerson is not that Secretary State and I urge Senator Rubio to choose country over party and vote NO. Thank you for your time.” For Constituents – “Hello. My name is [NAME] and I’m a constituent in [STATE]. I’m calling to ask [Senator Rubio/McCain/Graham] to vote NO when Rex Tillerson’s nomination comes to the floor for a full vote. I’m very concerned about Mr. Tillerson’s lack of foreign policy or senior military experience. But worse, Mr. Tillerson’s close business ties with Russian President Vladimir Putin and prior opposition to sanctions leave me questioning whether he would effectively defend American national security interests. We need a Secretary of State that puts our interests, safety and wellbeing before their own personal interests and agenda. I believe Rex Tillerson is not that Secretary State and I will be watching closely when [Senator Rubio/McCain/Graham] casts their vote. Thank you for your time.”
