Susan Collins Crowdpac campaign for Brett Kavanaugh 'no' vote tops $800,000

One campaign, created to pressure Sen.

After three days of aggressive questioning from Kamala Harris, Cory Booker and other Senate Democrats, Judge Brett Kavanaugh might come up for a vote in the U.S. Senate as soon as this Thursday, September 13-and votes to either confirm or reject Kavanaugh's nomination for the U.S. Supreme Court will no doubt come down along largely partisan lines. Although the Maine Senator has a very conservative voting record, she occasionally breaks ranks with her party-for example, Collins voted again impeaching Bill Clinton during his Senate trial in early 1999 and helped sink the American Health Care Act a year ago.

Republican Sen. Susan Collins is considered one of the GOP lawmakers who could conceivably vote against the appointment of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

Mainers for Accountable Leadership (MFAL) and the Maine People's Alliance are fundraising to oppose Collins in 2020, asking donors to pledge funds that they will only be charged if she votes to confirm Kavanaugh.

All eyes are on Collins, as well as her fellow moderate Republican, Sen.

"I am also deeply troubled by Judge Kavanaugh's views on executive power", Warner said.

Yesterday Senator Collins was asked about this controversial campaign by conservative news organization NewsMax. "Your swing vote could decide whether a rubber stamp for Trump's anti-healthcare, anti-woman, anti-labor agenda gets confirmed to the Supreme Court-costing millions of Americans their healthcare, their right to choose, and their lives".

A crowdsourced fundraising campaign is threatening to give more than $1 million to a future opponent of Sen. During the 2014 campaign, where Collins bested her Democratic opponent, Shenna Bellows, by a 68 to 32 percent margin, Collins spent $5.5 million and Bellows spent $2.3 million. About 26,000 of the 36,000 donations as of Tuesday afternoon were $20.20, according to the website.

Republicans now hold a slim 51-49 majority in the Senate and only 51 votes are required to confirm Kavanaugh.

But because these two senators are Republicans, activists are anxious that they will vote with their party to confirm Kavanaugh. In recent weeks, such activists have accused Kavanaugh of seeking to overturn Roe v. Wade if appointed to the Supreme Court, despite the nominee's assurance he viewed the matter as "settled" law. Kavanaugh would replace Anthony Kennedy, a centrist.
