    "PORTLAND (WGME) - There is mounting pressure on Senator Susan Collins from Mainers opposing the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court.

    Senator Susan Collins calls it bribery.

    More than $1 million has already been pledged online, from 42,000 people, many of them Mainers, who oppose Kavanaugh's nomination.

    "This campaign is a demonstration of how strongly Mainers feel about the threat that Brett Kavanaugh would pose on the Supreme Court," Amy Halsted of the Maine People’s Alliance said.
    "Lincoln County Indivisible," a Midcoast group, paid $6,000 for full page ads in three newspapers, calling for Senator Collins to stand by her word not to support a nominee who showed hostility to Roe v. Wade.

    "We're here today to deliver one of them to Senator Collins so that she can see that we are really, really trying to reach her to say no on the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh," Kate Josephs of Lincoln County Indivisible said.

    An hour later, letters from concerned Mainers and clergy were delivered to the senator, opposing Kavanaugh over fears he will end healthcare for people with pre-existing conditions."

      If one follows politics closely, Susan Collins buried her chances of being re-elected when she refused for new testimonies and evidence to be allowed in the Senate impeachment trials; and I bet she knows it. I doubt she will run for re-election.

      I am amazed that you can actually use the terms "honesty" and "Trump" in the same sentence without your head spinning around 360 degrees like Regan from The Exorcist. Kudos to you for your intestinal fortitude, I would not be able to do it.

      Enceladus Moon her supporters are republican and she made them happy by the way she voted. Look what happened to Romney. He is pretty much out of the Republican Party for doing the right thing which is probably best for him as he is an honorable man and no longer belongs around that type of people.

      That was probably one of the most feckless things ever said. “I think Trump learned his lesson”

      It would be funny if it wasn’t so sad in the fact that she was actually saying it seriously and coming from a position of power.

      Little by little day by day, we are all getting numb to the constant unrelenting attack on our laws, ethics and dignity.

    How is her logic: Trump learned his lesson - not enough to disqualify her for reelection? If Trump in her view, committed what he was accused of, she had to vote to impeach and remove. Simple. You don't get to break the law and defy the constitution and then say oops, I'll do better next time.

  • Cheryl Gowen

    I am from Maine and have supported Collins in the past. She simply stopped representing us; and turned to condescending, ridiculous explanations for her Trump votes. When she voted for the tax bill, she said Mainers just didn’t understand all of the good things in the bill for Maine??? She completely berated us over the Kavanaugh vote and betrayed ALL women; and now the impeachment crap she put us through......If I never have to hear about her “concern” again, it will be too soon. Voting for Sara Gideon!

    I think she nails it. Susan Collins will do or say anything Mitch McConnell commands her to do, but will make a BIG SHOW about her completely pretend decision making process.
    Both in the Kavanaugh hearing and in the impeachment case, there was just no doubt for me anymore that the was gonna vote pro-McConnell.
    She's not a moderate, just another attention-seeking politician.

    Need more groups like this.. not just holding senators (of both parties) accountable, but making it known that they are doing so. Making a public declaration that you are going to monitor any politician is, unfortunately necessary, but a big deal. It's like consumer advocacy; if you say out loud to the masses that you are going to boycott a product, they prick up their ears.

    So true. Collins plays both sides as a “I want to hear the facts before making a decision” and “I put America over party as expected”. But she knows what she will really do in the end. She tries to appease both sides and folks see through it. When time and time again you say that you want truth and justice and you’re not being biased but all of your votes are for one side... well then you’re taking us for fools and that kind of pisses us off.

    I knew how she was going to vote when I saw her talking to McConnel during the Impeachment trial. I was willing to bet that she would work out a deal where she could vote for more witnesses so it would look as though she was honest and reasonable but in the end vote for acquittal. Since she was in grave danger of losing her Senate seat she would pull her usual political brownnosing trick of appearing to sound like a reasonable person yet, in the end, her vote would betray that idea. It has worked in the past but it failed this time when she said that she thought that "Donald Trump had learned his lesson". I that was a direct insult to anyone who might have believed her "Reasonable Person" lies. I am an Independent and usually stay out of political squabbles between parties but for the first time ever, I have contributed to an out of state candidate, Sara Gideon. Goodbye Susan Collins!
