NEW YORK — Stand Up America has launched a six-figure organizing campaign demanding that every senator vote to convict Donald Trump. The campaign will specifically ramp up pressure on Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT), who will be a key vote in the Senate impeachment trial and an outspoken critic of Donald Trump, to vote in favor of removing Trump from office.

“This campaign will help ensure that Romney feels an enormous amount of pressure to convict the criminal in the White House,” said Stand Up America spokesperson Brett Edkins. “Romney claims he’s an independent voice in the Senate, but will he stand up to Donald Trump and uphold his oath of office? Will he help cover up Trump’s crimes? History is watching what he does next.”

Over the coming months, Stand Up America will spend more than $300,000 on digital organizing efforts nationally, including:

  • Launching a volunteer-driven peer-to-peer texting campaign in Utah, which will use information from the voter file to drive calls to Sen. Romney’s office and educate tens of thousands of his constituents about the need to remove Trump from office

  • Mobilizing the community of 2.5 million progressives in every state in the country to make calls to demand a fair Senate trial and Trump’s removal from office

  • Driving constituents to visit Senate offices, including Sen. Romney’s, using our VisitThem tool

  • Running digital ads targeting national audiences to drive calls to the Senate and educate the public about Trump’s impeachment and the Senate trial

In addition to Sen. Romney, Stand Up America’s campaign will also pressure over a dozen other senators, including:

  • Alexander (TN)
  • Collins (ME)
  • Ernst (IA)
  • Gardner (CO)
  • Hyde-Smith (MS)
  • Jones (AL)
  • Manchin (WV)
  • McSally (AZ)
  • Murkowski (AK)
  • Perdue (GA)
  • Portman (OH)
  • Sasse (NE)
  • Sinema (AZ)
  • Tillis (NC)
