It will be crucial to gather as much support for Cordray as possible between now and July.

We will be following up with next steps for how you can communicate with Sen. Kirk about the importance of confirming Cordray. In the meantime, please continue to call his office and let him know why we need a strong leader at the head of the CFPB.

Sen. Kirk has already voted against Cordray’s nomination in the Senate Banking Committee and has signed a letter vowing to filibuster Cordray unless the CFPB is substantially weakened. Illinois consumers can’t afford to stop the CFPB from doing important work because of political grandstanding.
