Crowdfunding Campaign to Unseat Susan Collins in 2020 Surges Past $3 Million

Half a dozen Democratic prospects are openly considering running against the Republican political powerhouse, while an online fund has generated $3.6 million - and counting - for Collins' ultimate Democratic challenger. "I know of multiple corroborating witnesses, and we were all prepared to speak with the Federal Bureau of Investigation as we made known for weeks".

The Hawaii Democrat criticized Collins for her views in light of the Maine Republican's meetings with sexual assault survivors. Fighting allegations of sexual misconduct from three decades ago, he won confirmation by a razor-thin margin on Saturday over the screaming objections of Democrats and women's groups in all corners of the nation.

"It just goes to show you how narrow the thinking of the opposition to Kavanaugh was that they would say those extremist, anti-Collins positions about a person who's been with them most of the time".

"On the unfair way Merrill Garland was treated, Susan Collins was silent", King wrote, presumably referring to Merrick Garland, who was nominated to the Supreme Court in 2016 by Barack Obama, and whom the Senate refused to hold a hearing or vote for.

Susan Collins on Sunday slammed opponents' efforts to fundraise against her vote to confirm Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court, calling them nothing more than blatant ploys to buy votes in a future election. "I did make a joke about it, but if I didn't boycott Maine over the racist Governor I'm not going to boycott over a Senator who believes Dr. Ford was assaulted but knows better than Dr. Ford who did it". "I certainly believe Dr. Ford", Hirono said.

"So, I believe he should have said nothing", Collins said.

Collins, who claims to support abortion rights, ignored multiple indications that Kavanaugh would gut those very protections if sworn in. "Senator Collins failed that test, and Mainers will remember where she stood when the Court rules to rip health care away from us". "She didn't stop", Trump said. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), who voted against Obamacare repeal and against Kavanaugh, is the only Republican senator who votes like a moderate, but hardly constitutes a "wing" or even a faction of the party.

Collins added: "She'd have to move to the state to become a legal resident".

A crowdfunding campaign has raised more than $3 million to unseat Sen. Cory Gardner (Colo.), who persuaded voters in 2014 he wasn't part of the "war on women"; Sen.
