Secretary of State

Rex Tillerson Hearings

Your DGB for today is to contact Marco Rubio (R-FL), who sits on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, and urge him to vote against the nomination of Rex Tillerson for Secretary of State.

Exxon has given Tillerson a hefty retirement package ahead of the hearings, which are scheduled for January 11th and 12th.

Rubio, like much of the country, has expressed concern over Tillerson’s ties to Russia, and one Republican against the appointment in his committee could swing the vote against Rex. We think Marco will cave if we pressure him enough, so let’s give him hell.

You'll contact Senator Rubio using this form.

Here’s a DGB suggested message:

Topic: Other

Subject: Rex Tillerson

Message: I’m asking that you oppose the confirmation of Rex Tillerson for Secretary of State. His close ties to Russia and lack of government experience disqualify him.


If you don’t want to give his office your contact information on the form, you can also deliver the message by phone at (202) 224-3041.

One Russian puppet in Washington is already one too many. Let’s not add Tillerson to the team.
