$3 million raised for Susan Collins’ 2020 challenger after she backed Brett Kavanaugh

$3 million raised for Susan Collins’ 2020 challenger after she backed Brett Kavanaugh, by Amanda Gomez.

Whoever runs against Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) in 2020 will start off their campaign with nearly $3 million, thanks to a crowdfunding campaign opposing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. …

The fundraiser’s website reads … “Senator Collins votes YES on Kavanaugh and your pledge will go to her opponent’s campaign, once that opponent has been identified.”

Local Maine groups and activist Ady Barkan launched the fundraiser on Crowdpac in August and so far have raised $2.9 million. Organizers surpassed their original goal of $2 million after Collins announced on Friday she’d vote to confirm Kavanaugh, saying she didn’t believe Dr. Christine Blasey Ford was sexually assaulted by him, and that she believes the soon-to-be Supreme Court justice won’t overturn Roe v. Wade.

The side of love and compassion (or so it says) teaches the world: oppose us and we will target you.
