Remember when so-called “moderate” Senator Susan Collins betrayed women everywhere and cast the deciding vote to confirm Brett Kavanuagh to the Supreme Court?
I’ll personally never forget how I and millions of other women felt that day: infuriated, devastated, and terrified over what this reckless, immoral decision meant for our country, our lives, and our freedom.
Confirming a man accused of sexual assault to the highest bench in the nation is a stain on our history and on Collins’ Senate career. When I finally moved past the emotions I felt above, one single thought stuck in my mind: we need to defeat Susan Collins in 2020.
Today, Democrat Betsy Sweet announced her campaign to take on Collins for this Senate seat in Maine, and I’m letting you know right now that Democracy for America has her back in this critical fight, starting on Day One.
No doubt, this will be an uphill battle. Collins is a long-time incumbent, and she’s got the power of the GOP establishment and dark money groups backing her up. But Betsy has us, and the power of more than one million grassroots members like you to help her do the unthinkable.
That’s why I’m asking if you’ll pitch in a contribution of $10, or whatever you can afford, towards Betsy’s and DFA’s campaign to kick Collins out of office and turn this U.S. Senate seat blue — are you in?
