5 Democrats broke away from the Schumer Shutdown. Please let them know you appreciate it. I have included Twitter and Facebook pages; you can comment there, or call them. Be aware that if you are not a constituent, your voice has less influence, so keep any phone messages short "Thank you for voting to fund the government." These Democrats voted for funding the government and did not hold it hostage to get legalization of illegal aliens: 1) Joe Donnelly @SenDonnelly Senator Donnelly's Facebook (202) 224-4814 2) Heidi Heitkamp @SenatorHeitkamp Senator Heitkamp's Facebook (202) 224-2043 3) Doug Jones @SenDougJones Senator Jones's Facebook 202-224-4124 4) Joe Manchin @Sen_JoeManchin Senator Manchin's Facebook (202) 224-3954 5) Claire McCaskill @clairecmc Senator McCaskill's Facebook (202) 224-6154 Here is a suggested tweet: To the 5 Democrats who broke away from Schumer: Thank you for voting against shutting down the government. You are truly putting country over party. @SenDonnelly @SenatorHeitkamp @SenDougJones @Sen_JoeManchin @clairecmc and a suggested Facebook message:I want to let you know that we appreciate your voting to fund the government and not holding our military and first responders hostage in order to allow Dick Durbin to dictate the terms of an immigration deal. You are truly are putting country ahead of party. The grateful voters will remember in November [2020 if you are writing to Doug Jones, who is not up for re-election this year], and so will non-constituents who give to campaigns outside their state. That is all.
