Just a short time ago, the Senate Armed Services Committee took an historic vote to include the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" in the defense authorization bill. Several of my committee colleagues and I overcame fierce opposition to reach victory and enhance our national security.
Now, we must make sure the amendment remains in the underlying defense authorization bill and is not stripped out by opponents on the Senate floor. John McCain and other Republicans are threatening to filibuster the bill.
Stand up to the filibuster threats and sign our petition to repeal DADT this year using this form!
