Fundraising campaign against Sen. Susan Collins closes in on $3.5 million

Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) announced that she didn’t believe Dr. Christine Blasey Ford was attacked by Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh and voted to confirm. Unfortunately for Collins, however, she didn’t quite vote her state’s interest.

Public Policy Polling revealed Collins didn’t have the voter support to confirm Kavanaugh. Before Dr. Ford testified, 49 percent of Maine voters said they wanted Collins to reject President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court pick. Only 42 percent supported it.

“It’s a tight spot for her and this vote is going to be one that people really remember, particularly moderates who lean Democratic but have supported her in the past,” University of New England political science professor Brian Duff told The Portland Press Herald. “She would love not to be in this situation.”

Collins is up for reelection in 2020, and she already has one heck of a war chest running against her before a candidate has declared. Thus far, the CrowdPAC fundraising has raised nearly $3.5 million for Collins opponent.

Some political experts have speculated that Collins simply won’t run again in 2020 to save face, but the Senator has yet to make an announcement.

But as the Hattiesburg American points out, it was Marx's response that set Twitter on fire.

Trump rages at Twitter — but the social media outlet fears public opinion more than it fears the president

Published

on

In a landmark action, Twitter has for the first time attached independent fact-checking information directly to two tweets from President Donald Trump. The president’s tweets make false claims alleging that wider use of mail in ballots will result in an increase in voter fraud.

This is far from the first time Trump has posted falsehoods on Twitter. But it is the first time the social media company has taken action against his account.

‘I’m entitled’: Kayleigh McEnany defends her 11 mail-in votes while calling it ‘fraud’ for the masses

Published

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany on Thursday faced questions from Fox News about why she had voted by mail 11 times even though President Donald Trump has called absentee ballots a "scam."

McEnany was asked about her voting history after the Tampa Bay Times reported that she had used mail-in voting nearly a dozen times in recent years.

"So why is it OK for you to do it?" Fox News host Ed Henry asked McEnany. "I understand you are traveling, you're in a different city. But how can you really be assured that your votes were counted accurately but when other people do it, it's fraud."
