The Senate Judiciary Committee was supposed to vote on the nomination of David Chipman to head the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives today. As the video below notes, it has been posted until next Thursday.
While I cannot see any of the Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee voting against Chipman, I am willing to be surprised. I wonder if the delay was related to that or perhaps to the efforts to get Democrats like Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Sen. Krysten Sinema (D-AZ) on-board with voting for Chipman.
I also saw this tweet, which somewhat vulgar, is really funny. I’ll let you click on the link.
With the one week reprieve, I suggest contacting your senators daily. The US Senate’s switchboard can forward your call to any Senator’s office. That number is 202-224-3121. You may want to also include other senators such as Manchin, Tester, Sinema, Murkowski, and Collins.
