Could Susan Rice challenge Susan Collins in 2020?

Could Susan Rice challenge Susan Collins in 2020?

She also sat down with CNN and defended her decision to back a man accused by many women of sexual assault.

"I put myself in his shoes", she said.

Kavanaugh's confirmation was stalled by accusations of sexual misconduct when he was in high school and college, but Collins and others said they were won over by his forceful denials and a supplemental Federal Bureau of Investigation report they say produced no evidence corroborating the claims.

"This would be a good time to say I never called for a boycott of Maine", John Fugelsang said in a tweet Tuesday. For her part, Collins bristled at the campaign and said it amounted to bribery.

Rice's "Me" tweet was a response to another Obama-era official, Jen Psaki, tweeting: "who wants to run for Senate in Maine? there will be an army of supporters with you".

The political groups Be A Hero Team, Maine People's Alliance and Mainers for Accountable Leadership had called out the senator before her vote, with a Crowdpac campaign titled: "Either Sen". But she did not say Kavanaugh or Judge assaulted the girls in the bedroom, nor did she provide the names of corroborating witnesses.

Hirono also sidestepped Bash's question on whether Michael Avenatti, who represents porn star Stormy Daniels, hurt the Democrats' arguments against Kavanaugh's confirmation by representing a third woman to make allegations of sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh. Now, she's being described by radical liberals as a "rape apologist" and "traitor". (She also voted for the Trump tax cuts.) Sen. Kavanaugh has repeatedly denied the allegation. Susan Collins' comments on Christine Blasey Ford "insulting" to Ford and other victims of sexual assault.

Diane Russell, a Democratic activist, said Collins voted to "betray ME women and ME survivors" by ignoring their stories.

"So, I believe he should have said nothing", Collins said.

Meanwhile, there are plenty of longtime ME politicians who appear to be taking a serious look at challenging Collins, which itself is notable. "He's put forth his nominee, he should have left it up to us to assess the allegations, with the help of the Federal Bureau of Investigation". And if all goes the way it appears to be heading, that could mean the end of the line for her long senatorial career. She has sided with those who disbelieved, disrespected, and even mocked survivors. "ME and America deserve better".

"And this is just outrageous", she said.
