Collins's state until the state dumps Collins. Kavanaugh is sure to be the tiebreaking vote in a series of 5-4 decisions that will defy the will of the public, ensuring this fight will rage for years to come. Susan Collins (R-ME), who voted for Kavanaugh's confirmation. Her office said on Sunday that she and her offices have been provided enhanced security for weeks because of "multiple serious threats". Instead, she writes that it is about "recognizing that the simple act of speaking one's truth, especially when that truth involves sexual assault, is an act of bravery".

'Those are pretty high bars, ' the senator added. "Collins votes no on Kavanaugh or we fund her future opponent" has raised over $3 million for the 2020 race.

Nine days later, Kavanaugh became a Supreme Court justice. In this case it was obvious there were going to be people very angry at me no matter what I did.


He did not specifically say whether he supports a woman's right to abortion, but rather, his support of the Constitution. Like so many Americans, I am deeply disappointed in Senator Collins' vote for Kavanaugh. He was confirmed the next day in a 50-48 Senate vote.

Collins, alongside Arizona Senator Jeff Flake, spent hours reviewing 45 pages of interview notes from the FBI investigation into the judge.

Senators were able to view the report that was available only in a secure setting on the Capitol.


"I do not believe that Brett Kavanaugh was her assailant", she told CNN's "State of the Union" in an interview scheduled to air on Sunday. And if she's willing, she should give testimony too.

One incensed voter left a voicemail for Collins in which he repeatedly screamed insults while wondering how Collins could accept Kavanaugh's statement that he considers Roe v. Wade to be "settled law" when he was "handpicked by the Federalist Society specifically to overturn" that decision.

The Senate narrowly voted Friday to limit debate on Kavanaugh's nomination, advancing it to Saturday's final confirmation vote.


Ford rejected the mistaken-identity theory floated by Republicans and Kavanaugh advocates when she testified under oath last month that she was "100 percent" certain it was Kavanaugh who she said pinned her on a bed at a high school house party, tried to remove her clothing and placed a hand over her mouth when she attempted to yell for help.
