Grassley vows to help raise $3M for Collins to counter progressive campaign

The $3 Million Crowdfunding Effort To Unseat Sen. Collins In 2020

Susan Collins' (R-Maine) vote to confirm U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, activists are calling for a boycott against the entire state of ME out of retaliation. She called it "the most hard in the 22 years that I've been honored to represent the state of Maine in the Senate".

Grassley, chairman of the Senate Committee on the Judiciary, said Wednesday on "The Laura Ingraham Show" that the moderate Collins deserves help from conservatives for methodically making the case for Kavanaugh and then voting for his confirmation last week.

An unknown, future Democratic Senate candidate in ME has already received millions for his or her 2020 campaign.

Back home in ME, the debate over Ms. Collins' future was heating up. Told her to "shut up" and stay quiet because people like you apparently believe assault victims are to blame. So it's not completely insane. They should ask the Princeton theology professor (we know how the right like's credentials) to "corroborate" Ramirez's claims.

For her part, Collins accused the groups behind the fundraising campaign of trying to buy votes in an interview with CBS' "60 Minutes" on Sunday.

She correctly labeled the process that has become corrupt, nasty and divisive: "We have come to the conclusion of a confirmation process that has become so dysfunctional it looks more like a caricature of a gutter-level political campaign than a solemn occasion".

Matches and Training Too, He Demands Lots - Liverpool Star On Jurgen Klopp
The midfielder's claims for an England recall were pushed by the Italian manager, who said after Sunday's game he expected the Liverpool-born player to become "very important for the England national team".

"I found Dr. Ford's testimony to be heart-wrenching, painful, compelling, and I believe that she believes what she testified to", Collins said. "I do not believe that Brett Kavanaugh was her assailant".

The former Alaska governor, who ran as vice president on the McCain ticket in 2008, was often mocked for her statements during her run, and long after. 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.

The Maine Senator also said in a Friday speech that Kavanaugh places high importance on previous court decisions. She described in her floor speech, in a professional and dispassionate manner, how she reached her conclusion. While she lacks significant statewide name recognition, she said she will seriously consider running for the position. Maybe a lot of people have lost faith or don't trust her, but when it comes to major votes on health care, the environment, civil rights or any other big issue where else can we turn? "Collins votes no on Kavanaugh or we fund her future opponent" has raised over $3 million for the 2020 race. "She rejected winning at all costs and the politics of personal destruction".

Palin, Rice mull challenging Alaska & Maine senators whose Kavanaugh votes sparked outrage America may see an interesting female showdown as a spin-off of the Brett Kavanaugh saga.

"I put myself in his shoes", she said. "I'm going to give it due consideration after the midterms".
