Crowdfunding campaign tied to Collins' vote on Kavanaugh surpasses $1 million

Suddenly The Left Loves Selectively Edited Videos

Collins said she will make a decision as soon as she has completed her review of the public hearings and relevant committee documents. HHS declares health emergency ahead of hurricane McConnell predicts Senate vote on Kavanaugh in last week of September MORE (R-Maine) in recent days urging her to reject Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the Supreme Court.

Here are five USA senators who could either make or break Kavanaugh's nomination. Collins' vote could decide whether he is appointed. "If I vote for him, the money is given to my opponent for the 2020 race", she continued, emphasizing that, "this effort will not influence my vote at all".

According to Collins, she is also facing a form of blackmail from a left-wing activist who raised $1 million in a crowd funding campaign. "Collins VOTES NO on Kavanaugh OR we fund her future opponent" and is being pushed by liberal activists nationwide, including gun-controller David Hogg.

Earlier today this crowdfunding campaign surpassed the $1,000,000 mark on the backs of 36,752 pledges from people willing to donate their hard earned dollars to the cause. "Annie Clark, a spokeswoman for Ms. Collins, provided The New York Times with copies of a letter and multiple voice mail messages addressed to the senator using vulgar language and outright threats".

TS Helene becomes hurricane; TS Isaac could become hurricane soon
McMaster said he had asked President Donald Trump to declare a federal emergency in SC in anticipation of the storm's arrival. Not only has the storm exploded in intensity, but its zone of hurricane-force winds approximately doubled in size Monday.

Jordan Libowitz, a spokesman for the Citizens for Ethics and Responsibilities, told the Washington Post, "It seems kind of icky but it doesn't rise to the level of bribery because there's no agreement. The people of ME are asking you to be a hero, Senator Collins". "We will get you out of office". 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. If that holds, Chuck Schumer will release red state Democrats who are up this year to vote to confirm, making Judge Kavanaugh's confirmation bipartisan.

Brian Fallon, the executive director and founder of Demand Justice, a liberal advocacy group, said his strategy is to increase pressure on Democrats to announce opposition to Kavanaugh in order to push Collins and Sen.

A Maine TV station obtained voicemails being left at Collins's offices, including one caller who brought up a 2003 email where Kavanaugh suggested cutting a paragraph out of a draft op-ed that characterized Roe v. Wade as widely accepted among legal scholars as settled law.
