Wilson told Senators in his letter to pull out all of the stops and to “use every tool” at their disposal to “prevent the confirmation of these individuals.”

Wilson continued, “Should they be included in any Consent Resolution, Americans for Limited Government requests you object.  Should they be brought to the floor of the Senate, we request you place a Hold on the nomination.  And should cloture motion be filed, we strongly request you vote to oppose cloture.  And, should all else fail, we urge you to side with the overwhelming majority of the American people by opposing these extremely bad appointments.”
