As the days tick away for Republicans to challenge Senator Susan Collins in a primary, Maine Democrats are rolling out a countdown clock to monitor if she's willing to publicly state her support of Trump.
With just 35 days remaining, here’s what we know:
1) According to CQ, Senator Collins voted with Donald Trump 94% of the time.
2) Senator Collins has been a key vote for Donald Trump on everything from the tax plan that gave corporations and the wealthy trillions in tax breaks to the confirmation of Brett Kavanagh and every one of his judicial nominees in 2017 and 2018 -- even those “deemed unqualified by the American Bar Association.” Just last week she joined with Mitch McConnell to acquit Trump in the impeachment trial, after voting 12 times against including witnesses and evidence.
3) Donald Trump has said he's 100% behind Senator Collins' reelection.
4) Staffers for the president’s reelection campaign “worked to get her on the ballot” by collecting signatures door-to-door and at Trump events.
Yet in typical Collins fashion, when asked whether she's supporting Donald Trump's re-election she refuses to publicly give an answer.
It’s time for Senator Collins to answer: Are you supporting President Trump’s re-election?
