Citizens outraged over the fact that Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) has said she will vote to confirm controversial jurist Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court are raising money at a breathtaking pace.
The organization CrowdPAC is fundraising online to support whomever Democrats nominate to challenge the Maine senator in 2020.
The fundraising model is based on citizens pledging financial support, with credit card contributions being charged if Collins votes to confirm Kavanaugh.
“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,” the page reads.
“If you fail to stand up for the people of Maine and for Americans across the country, every dollar donated to this campaign will go to your eventual Democratic opponent in 2020,” the fundraising page continues. “We will get you out of office.”
Over 100,000 people have joined the effort, with over $3 million raised.
The funds will go to the eventual nominee.
Former Ambassador Susan Rice is considering running for the seat.
