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.
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".

He admitted that he was thrilled at the prospect of trying out a new challenge but since Bayern was one of the biggest clubs in the world, it was hard for him to walk away.
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".

"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.
