Key senators to call to prevent Arctic drilling?

I understand it's being voted on tomorrow morning...
Anyone who knows the key senators from any state to call, please post contacts. It's not much, but let's try to put pressure on them even at this late date...
Found the info. PLEASE CONTACT THEM! 15.Mar.2005 14:35

so sad

Sen. Harry Reid, D-NV, says that the Senate Democrats are 1 vote short of stopping the vote to drill in the Artic National Wildlife Refuge. 2 key Democratic Senators who are not on board yet are Sen. Daniel Akaka, D-HI and Sen. Daniel Inouye, D-HI.  http://democrats.senate.gov/senators.html

Please contact them to urge their no vote on drilling in ANWR.

Another Thawt 15.Mar.2005 15:41

Den Mark, Vancouver

Another thawt is to call republicans who've shown some independence. I know there aren't many. One, tho, is Lincoln Chaffee of Rhode Island. He voted against bush's so-called "clear-skies" garbage. So maybe he can be reasoned with.
