MontanaTester.jpg is a key state in the fight for ENDA. There are two Senators supportive of ENDA here.

One of these is Senator Jon Tester. Please call him today to ask for his support.

There are 40 co-sponsors of ENDA, and another 9 confirmed yes votes on ENDA, some of them who have only confirmed privately. Will they publicly state their support, to help us bring in the unconfirmed and the fence-sitters? Will they continue to support ENDA when crunch time comes, or will they crumble when the opposition surfaces? Will Senator Tester?

Facts and contact info after the jump.

Senator Tester has spoken against gay marriage, according to Wikipedia. However, he sees Constitutional bans on the issue as unnecessary. He has voted for the hate crimes bill.

More importantly, he has confirmed his support for ENDA in letters to constituents. On August 6, 2009, he sent a letter to Projector Roberta (comment 3), and the same letter was sent to another constituent the following day.

Please call Senator Tester to thank him for his support of ENDA, and ask if his office can confirm his support for S1584. You may get a staffer who is unaware of the Senator's position on ENDA. Take a moment to explain what it is, and to ask if he or she can get some information on the Senator's position. Tell us what they said in the comments below.
