REPUBLICANS RALLY: Grassley Vows to Help Susan Collins 'Keep Her Seat'

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

Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) said Wednesday that she had "little interest in what she has to say", when asked about former Obama administration National Security Adviser Susan Rice floating a Democratic candidacy for Senate in Maine.

"I put myself in his shoes", she said.

Christine Blasey Ford, a psychology professor, accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her during a drunken party when both were teenagers. Kavanaugh has denied all the allegations.

"This would be a good time to say I never called for a boycott of Maine", John Fugelsang said in a tweet Tuesday.

Collins called the campaign an attempt to extort her.

"I've said to the women who are justifiably angry but determined. they should be just focused like a laser beam on the elections", Hirono added. Rice is not now a ME resident - she has family ties to the state - but would bring political celebrity that could make it hard for the state's shallow bench of lesser-known Democrats to stand out. And the one thing that she recollects with 100 percent accuracy is that Judge Kavanaugh, Brett Kavanaugh, assaulted her.

Mr Trump apologised to Mr Kavanaugh and his family for "the awful suffering you have been forced to endure". Kavanaugh has sent more female law clerks to the Supreme Court than any other judge in the country.

United Nations panel urges fast action to avoid climate catastrophe
The agency removed its section on climate change from its website a year ago for an "update" that has yet to materialize. By 2030, global carbon dioxide emissions must be 45% less than they were in 2010, the report found.

In short, Mainers who support abortion rights feel as though they were taken for a ride - assured in election after election that Collins was an abortion-rights supporter, led to believe that Collins truly was undecided on Kavanaugh, and then fed a series of disingenuous arguments to justify what Collins had wanted to do all along. During Sunday's appearance, she described her grandparents' arrival in the state from Jamaica in 1912, her yearly summer visits that began in childhood and the home she now owns. "She didn't stop", Trump said.

It also complicates Collins' path to a fifth term.

And in an even more tone-deaf statement, Collins told CBS Face the Nation, "The one silver lining that I hope will come from this is that more women will press charges now when they are assaulted".

Meanwhile, there are plenty of longtime ME politicians who appear to be taking a serious look at challenging Collins, which itself is notable. "I do believe that she was assaulted". "He's put forth his nominee, he should have left it up to us to assess the allegations, with the help of the Federal Bureau of Investigation".

The fight over Susan Collins' political future is already raging. "We deserve better. Women won't forget". "I worked to preserve funding for Planned Parenthood over and over again, and I'm going to continue to do so".
