15. Frist does NOT YET have the votes he needs
A number of senators, both Dems and Repubs, are still trying to work this out. A number of Repubs believe that Frist is not doing the right thing.

fighttotheend has posted the senators to contact to try to sway them to maintain the filibuster. Please take the time to call or fax them. They are being pressured quite agressively by the religious right. Now lobbying firms are calling them saying threatening to withhold campaign donations if they vote against Frist. These people NEED to hear from us in a loud, unified and continuous voice.
