The Senate is expected to vote on Treasury nominee Steven Mnuchin and EPA nominee Scott Pruitt as early as this Monday, Feb. 13. Here are some sample scripts you can use to urge Sens. Brown and Portman to vote against these nominees.
NO to Mnuchin for Treasury
Hi, my name is [YOUR NAME], and I’m calling from [CITY], [STATE]. I’m calling to oppose Steve Mnuchin (mi-NEW-chin) as the next secretary of the treasury.
Mnuchin is a former Goldman Sachs executive. His company profited by foreclosing on elderly homeowners. He is the last type of person we need in the treasury department.
I hope you will vote no on his nomination and encourage your peers to do the same.

NO to Pruitt for EPA
“Hello, I am [NAME] from [PLACE]. As your constituent, I’m afraid that Scott Pruitt, Donald Trump’s pick to head the EPA, would be a disaster for our health, air, water, and climate. Will the Senator pledge to publicly oppose Pruitt’s nomination?”
