Sample Script: For Tennessee Constituents – Hello. My name is [NAME] and I’m a constituent in Tennessee. I’m calling to urge Chairman Corker to respect the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations’ recommendation on Secretary of State nominee Rex Tillerson. If the Committee withholds its recommendation, I ask that Chairman Corker refrain from bringing Tillerson’s nomination to a full Senate vote. The Committee on Foreign Relations has expertise on international affairs and has had the opportunity to question the nominee and carefully weigh his qualifications. The determination of the Committee should be respected, and Chairman Corker should defer to their expertise rather than attempt to circumvent the Committee’s judgment. I appreciate your time.
