Opponents vow Sen. Collins will pay price for Kavanaugh vote

As the decision looms anti Kavanaugh demonstrators weigh on a Maine senator’s tiny staff Collins: I did what I thought was right

Susan Collins (R-Maine) is "insulting" Christine Blasey Ford by saying she believes the psychology professor was sexually assaulted by someone other than newly confirmed Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

"It's certainly been a hard situation - the most hard in the 22 years I've been honored to represent the state of Maine in the United States Senate", Collins said shortly after the vote on the Senate floor. But Ms. Collins, after hours of interviewing Justice Kavanaugh in what one senator later called a masterly legal clinic, said she doesn't see it. Even before Collins had announced her "yes" vote for Kavanaugh, the page had raised $2 million-declaring, "Either Collins VOTES NO on Kavanaugh, or we fund her future opponent".

"In a dissent in Seven-Sky v. Holder, Judge Kavanaugh rejected a challenge to the ACA on narrow procedural grounds, preserving the law in full". Susan Collins, whose decision to support Brett Kavanaugh was key to his confirmation to the Supreme Court.

"[The other Republicans] were all very guarded about making an announcement", he said, adding that it was "rare" that he called for a vote without being certain the nomination would pass. According to a new report from Planned Parenthood, 25 million USA women of reproductive age "are poised to lose access to abortion immediately if Kavanaugh is the fifth vote to overturn Roe vs. Wade".

As he did during his confirmation hearing, Kavanaugh also told Collins that Roe v. Wade, which was affirmed by the Supreme Court in a 1992 case, is "a precedent on a precedent".

Pelley initiated the conversation with Collins and said: 'There are many who believe that judge Kavanuagh will be the vote that results in abortion becoming illegal in the United States. and I wonder if you are concerned about that?'

"In short, his views on precedent would preclude attempts to do by stealth that which one has committed not to do overtly", she said.

During her appearance in New York, Rice contended her ties to ME "are long and deep".

Collins announced her support of Kavanaugh on Friday with a 44-minute speech on the Senate floor in which she offered a point-by-point defense of his judicial record and personal character.

"First of all, I have never disregarded, disrespected or mocked survivors".

"I put myself in his shoes", she said. "Everybody knows that", Ms. Collins said.

When she finished her speech Sen.

Her constituents in ME have taken notice, raising some four million dollars for her eventual 2020 opponent. "The country needed what Susan Collins provided today - reason, facts and an understanding of who we are as a nation".

"Senator Collins will be well-funded [too], I can assure you", McConnell said.

"It's too soon to say what I might do", Hannah Pingree told the AP.

In an appearance Sunday, Ms. Collins said she wasn't backing down.

"I mean, that is so devastating, and I think he reacted with anger and anguish as a father of two young girls, a 10-year-old and a 13-year-old", the Maine Republican said.
