GOP senators condemn 'vulgar' messages directed at Collins over Kavanaugh vote

Sen. Susan Collins arrives at the Kennedy Center for a tribute concert for Sen. Edward Kennedy on Mar. 8 2009 in Washington DC

This senator might vote for Kavanaugh. So activists sent her 3000 coat hangers.

Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) is one of two pro-choice Republicans in the U.S. Senate, along with Senator Lisa Murkowski.

Collins has been subject to intense pressure from liberals over her vote on Kavanaugh.

For what it's worth, one Democratic challenger and one Republican challenger have announced intentions to run against Collins in 2020.

Activists trying to block Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh are threatening to make a hefty donation to Sen. His office said the senator also took into account, "the opinions of thousands of ME people who have written and called into his office or approached the Senator personally".

As of 2 p.m., the storm was centred 435 miles (700 kilometres) southeast of Wilmington, North Carolina, moving at 16 mph (26 kph). Rather than pushing up toward western Virginia, the storm's center is now predicted to move across the middle of SC .

As of Wednesday the fund was up to more than $1.1 million, rapidly approaching the goal of $1.3 million-the same amount Collins reportedly has on-hand for her 2020 re-election campaign-that Barkan's group has now set. Members of the group have met with Collins over the past 18 months on issues such as protecting the state's young immigrants known as Dreamers. It is the false, nasty, vulgar, personal, uncivil verbal abuse of an honorable and diligent public servant like Senator Collins.

Ads are being run in ME to put pressure on her to vote against Kavanaugh. Although the Maine Senator has a very conservative voting record, she occasionally breaks ranks with her party-for example, Collins voted again impeaching Bill Clinton during his Senate trial in early 1999 and helped sink the American Health Care Act a year ago.

As well as his views on abortion, many people are also concerned about Mr Kavanaugh's desire to abolish gun control legislation and unravel the Affordable Care Act. If she's not going to do that, and if she won't give thoughtful consideration to their concerns, they have the right to pledge their support to her opponent, both with their votes and with their money. "He is committed to overturning Roe v. Wade".

"Through this grassroots effort, Mainers are making clear to Senator Collins that they will defeat her for reelection if she defies the will of the people and votes to confirm Judge Kavanaugh".

DeGeneres is happy for Klum, but she was also curious if Drake ever reached out to her after the episode aired in February. I just didn't get it at all!" she added. "I mean we met what is now six-and-half-months ago, and I love him very much".

"We won't let it stifle us. Kavanaugh, it does so in the shadow of the last day of the Senate Judiciary Committee's hearing, with strikingly different depictions of the appeals court judge on display".

Reproductive rights groups are concerned that confirming Kavanaugh could lead to the court criminalizing abortion or ending other protections guaranteed under Roe v. Wade. The same shout-and-arrest pattern continued throughout the week.

But the announcements came from Democrats who signaled skepticism about Kavanaugh when Trump nominated him in July and had been widely assumed to be "no" votes from the start.
