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

  • Here's 'Something Bold' Democrats Can Do: Conduct the Kavanaugh Probe White House and GOP Refused to Have

Dickerson asked Collins whether the fact that holes were poked in Ford's allegations, even by President Trump, would in fact make it more hard for victims of sexual assault to come forward, Collins said she does not believe that will be the case.

Murkowski said: 'I could not conclude that he is the right person for the court at this time'.

"She says that Dr. Ford thinks that she was assaulted, which is even more insulting than saying that she gave a very credible account", Hirono told CNN on Sunday of her GOP colleague, who helped pave the way for Kavanaugh's confirmation by a 50-48 Senate vote on Saturday.

The senator announced this past Friday that she'd support Kavanaugh. And because it was created to directly influence her vote, the legality may be dicey.

"While we are in these sort of times where we are having hard conversations and people are really split, you don't get to be moderate or a centrist anymore when you have moved forward this guy who acted the way he acted, and to me he is nearly a caricature of white male privilege", Ms. Lynn said.

"There is a special place in hell for women who cover for rapists", she said in an email blast after the vote.

More than 40,000 donors have contributed to the effort, which pledges they won't be charged if Collins votes against Kavanaugh.

Democrats read the tea leaves and saw a justice committed to overturning Roe v. Wade, the 1973 decision that established a national right to abortion. "And I know it for a fact because I spoke with her, she didn't stop".

'Horrific' limo crash in New York State claims 20 lives
Police said everyone inside the limousine, including the driver, died in the crash, and all those killed were adults. Relatives said the limousine was carrying four sisters and their friends to a birthday celebration for the youngest.

Collins explained the reasoning behind her vote Saturday to confirm Kavanaugh to John Dickerson on CBS's Face the Nation in a interview recorded Saturday and aired Sunday.

Turning to the assault accusations, Ms. Collins said she found accuser Christine Blasey Ford's testimony "sincere, painful and compelling".

Steve Nason, 44, said he had always questioned Ms. Collins' claims to be a moderate but that her speech impressed him with its thoroughness and thoughtfulness. I also believe that I'm a guys' girl, okay?

Collins said today that crowdsourced funding targeting her was tantamount to "a bribe, or extortion".

Now, Halsted said, Collins' constituents are "ready to support a senator from Maine who is going to stand up for Mainers and do what's right for the country, regardless of political party-and I think people realize Susan Collins is not that senator".

Upon her arrival in her home state, the newspaper reported, "Police escorted her off the flight separate from other passengers after it landed at Bangor International Airport, avoiding about 20 protesters at the airport terminal".

Collins said she considers the crowdfunding campaign raising money for whoever might challenge her in 2020 to be an attempt at bribery. But, I will say that I thought his questioning, with the questioning with the senators, that he went over the line.

Rice, however, said her "ties to ME are long and deep". She said her flight was delayed but she was determined return to ME for the dedication of a bridge honoring the late Cpl.
