McConnell promised that Collins would be “well-funded” after her key vote for Kavanaugh
Collins has seen “the biggest decline of anyone in the Senate” - now second most unpopular Senator after McConnell himself
A Washington-based dark money group aligned with Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is once again spending more than $500,000 to prop up Senator Susan Collins as she faces increased scrutiny over her record on voting against efforts to reduce the cost of prescription drugs and breaking with the standard she set on impeachment 20 years ago.
Collins’ approval has seen “the biggest decline of anyone in the Senate” and McConnell is following through on his promise to spare “no expense” to ensure that her reelection effort would be “well-funded.” Collins has voted with McConnell to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court and other anti-choice, anti-health care judges to lifetime appointments on the federal bench.
OneNation is closely linked to ultra-conservative interests and has funded extreme anti-reproductive rights groups that cheered Kavanaugh’s confirmation. As Republicans in Washington are calling on the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade, their allies are spending big to ensure they keep Collins’ increasingly reliable vote for anti-choice interests in the Senate.
