A crowdfunding effort to raise money against Sen. Susan Collins’s (R-Maine) potential 2020 opponent broke $3 million in contributions Friday.
The campaign, organized by Be A Hero Team, Maine People’s Alliance and Mainers for Accountable Leadership, was conditional on Collins’s vote in the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, and after pledging her support for the nominee Friday the money will now go to her potential opponent.
The article goes on to state the following:
The campaign highlights threats to the people of Maine with Kavanaugh’s confirmation.
“The pending nomination of Brett Kavanaugh for Supreme Court Justice is a threat to everyday Mainers like us,” it reads.
“Kavanaugh is committed to ending healthcare for people with pre-existing conditions. He is committed to overturning Roe v. Wade. Kavanaugh cannot be nominated – he would mean bankruptcy and danger for millions of families in Maine and America.”

“This vote is a complete betrayal of Maine voters, of the women who have called her offices, and written letters and organized phone banks and attended rallies and told their very deeply painful stories.” -MPA Co-Director Amy Halsted https://t.co/eaoCsPhGeJ #mepolitics
