In the first day of asking senators to co-sponsor Sen. Pinsky’s Democracy Amendment Resolution, we garnered 8 signatures. Eight more have taken our “Pledge to Get $$$ Out.” We expect the majority of both the Senate and the House of Delegates to sign on.
Yet, we do face determined opposition, both from defenders of the status quo and from those who disagree with our strategy of using the convention of the states clause of the Constitution.
If we can pass the Senate, we have a strong sponsor in Del. Gaines and a Pledge of positive action from Speaker of the House, Mike Busch.
